Unites reaction to today's announcement that Scarborough and NE Yorkshire NHS Trust will not declare cuts until after meeting with Trust board in September

YORKSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2007) - Unites reaction to today's announcement that Scarborough and NE Yorkshire NHS Trust will not declare cuts until after meeting with Trust board in September.

Unite Regional Officer, Terry Cunliffe, said:

"Management have told us today that it will not supply details of proposed cuts until after they have put those proposals to the Trust Board in September.

"We have made clear to that we are concerned this means that staff and patients will have to live with a terrible uncertainty until then and that this process does not allow for meaningful consultation with trade unions.

"The Trust are playing at consultation and ultimately playing fast and loose with people's lives."
