Finance staff among redundancies at Staffordshire hospital

Finance staff will be among up to 1,000 staff to lose their jobs at
University Hospital of North Staffordshire, as efforts to turn around NHS
deficits continue to bite.

The hospital, looking to reduce a budget deficit of £17m, will shed staff
from all its back-office functions, and the cuts will spread to the frontline.

A spokesman for the hospital said that turnaround teams from accounting firms
had not imposed the redundancies, but consultants from Deloitte were advising
the hospital’s chief executive and finance director as it looked to cut the
deficit.

‘They give us feedback and make suggestions,’ the spokesman said. ‘But they
report to us.’

He added that the management’s ‘robust plans’ stopped the Department of
Health imposing turnaround teams on the hospital to force through cutbacks.
