Amicus on Lincolnshire NHS Trust suspension and waiting time fiasco

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 10, 2006) -

Amicus' Regional Secretary, Nev Jackson, said:

"This demonstrates that the Trust is failing both its' patients and its employees. Ward and A&E closures and more than 500 job losses in the last year have affected the Trusts ability to provide the service that patients deserve, seriously overstretching services and damaging staff morale.

"It is right that senior staff should be held to account for the financial mismanagement that has resulted in the deficit, job cuts and the unacceptable failures in treatment waiting times."
