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.
