London PCTs plan to improve healthcare for all Londoners

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

London NHSLondon’s 31 PCTs have drawn up proposals to wipe out deficits in 10 hospitals and Hillingdon PCT. NHS London said the move would ensure that all trusts were on an ‘even keel’ and warned that without action, debt across London would reach £579 million by 2011.

Ann Radmore, Chief Executive of Wandsworth Teaching PCT, said: “The capital’s 31 PCTs are clear that they need to work together as one NHS to improve health and healthcare for all Londoners. This is challenging for us and PCTs are being asked to consider wider issues beyond their borough boundaries.”

PCTs will make a decision on whether the proposals should be implemented at their own Board meetings, which will run from 8th to 19th December.
