Pa­tients must not lose out in dis­pute

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

THE bick­er­ing which ap­pears to have be­set health ser­vices in Peter­bor­ough is surely a worry.

on the back of a £12m loss in the last fi­nan­cial year, NHS Peter­bor­ough, the pri­mary care trust which com­mis­sions health ser­vices in the city, clearly has its work cut out bal­anc­ing the books this year.

But, it would ap­pear, the hos­pi­tals trust which runs PdH, Edith Cavell and Stam­ford hos­pi­tal is not keen to al­low the PCt to call all the shots when it comes to ne­go­ti­at­ing con­tracts be­tween the two or­gan­i­sa­tions.

that they can­not even agree on whether a me­di­a­tor is needed to bro­ker a deal says a lot.

What ever the out­come, when the bick­er­ing has fin­ished the pub­lic must not be the loser.
