South London Healthcare Trust
The Secretary of State has appointed a Special Trust Administrator to South London Healthcare Trust, after the Trust ran into financial difficulties.
Royal College of Nursing Chief Executive & General Secretary, Dr Peter Carter is quoted in the Daily Mail and the Sun as saying: “This announcement is an unprecedented step by the Secretary of State and moves the NHS into unchartered waters. It presents a worrying state of affairs for both patients and staff at the Trust, who will be undoubtedly concerned by today’s decision.”
