MPs have been informed that in order to tackle the financial crisis faced by NHS trust in south London, main services are being proposed to be stopped in hospitals. Further, they have been acknowledged that there has been an increase in the number of NHS organizations experiencing economic problems.
South London Healthcare NHS Trust has been reported to have gradually started to be in bad state, following slipping into debt of £150m. However, in July the trust was handed over to administration so that it can take over the charge of the trust and manage the three hospitals running under it, Sidcup, Woolwich and Orpington.
David Flory, Chief Executive of the NHS Trust Development Authority, which controls the trusts that are facing financial problems, asserted that significant changes need to be implemented so as to help improve the conditions of the trusts.
While addressing the public accounts committee, Flory said, "I think that the full range of services which are provided on all of those sites will change. They will be provided but not on all of the sites".
However, the measures proposed by Flory will turn out to be troublesome for the patients, as to avail certain treatments, they might have to travel long distances.
