I have been extremely concerned to learn that Barts NHS Trust has been put under special financial measures as a result of the severe financial challenges it now faces. Tower Hamlets Clinical Commissioning Group believes the crisis owes much to the short-sighted Private Finance Initiative of the last Labour Government and the massive cuts dressed up as “efficiency savings” courtesy of the Conservative-led coalition. As the creator of the NHS, Labour should be defending it ferociously. Instead they have decided to waste a lot of time talking to themselves about their relations with the unions.
