- 2016 Health Care Service Group Conference
- 10 December 2015
Northumbria Healthcare Foundation Trust became the first Trust in the UK to buy out a P.F.I. contract, releasing £3.5 million a year to go towards patient care. In total the savings over length of contract was approx. £48 million.
If Northumbria can do it why not all Trusts? Releasing millions of pounds to go on to patient care and staffing costs.
Conference calls on the SGE to support and encourage branches to explore this with their Employers and where needed the Government.
