BARTS FINANCIAL CRISIS
Huge fears exist following Bart’s trust announcement that it is in “turnaround”. It has called in financial consultants to help save £77.5 million this financial year to meet government spending cuts. The trust is talking about cutting staff costs by the equivalent of 1,000 posts through staff cuts and having fewer of our more skilled and experienced nurses, therapists and others compared to lower paid bands and junior staff. And just at this time they are threatening action against a senior long-standing Whipps Cross union rep.

WHIPPS CROSS AT RISK?
Many feel that Whipps Cross Hospital is particularly vulnerable, though Barts Health Trust has strongly denied this. Our hospitals and community services in East London provide care for some of the most deprived boroughs in the country. Disinvestment on this scale, if allowed to happen, would amount to disinvestment in the health of our communities.

PRIVATE PROFIT MUST NOT DICTATE OUR HEALTH CARE!
The first place the trust should look is the crippling £115 million a year payments to the Private Finance Initiative (PFI) consortium running the new London Hospital buildings. The government cancelled the bankers’ debts, why not those of our NHS? The Trust’s duty and accountability is to the population it serves. It should be demanding the level of funding we need, and ensure this is spent on healthcare NOT on corporate profits.
