Budget cuts force NHS hospitals to stop non-emergency surgery | Society | The Guardian

An NHS primary care trust with a budget of £650m has been forced to announce a radical set of cuts which will mean non-emergency surgery in local hospitals being barred to patients for a month.

Some treatments, including in vitro fertilisation, will be stopped until next year, and operations such as hip replacements will be cancelled to deal with the £50m gap in the trust's projected budget.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

50 million...there are bankers, and many groups of bankers, who will be getting bonuses of this magnitude, indirectly and directly from public financing of banks...from the coffers of the economy that has failed the public.



Never underestimate their intelligence, always underestimate their knowledge.
