600 Jobs To Be Axed At The Royal Berkshire Hospital

The Chief Medical Officer for the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Jonathan Fielden, said that “Everyone is now well aware that we are working to achieve our aim in a challenging financial situation that is facing the whole country and in particular the public sector. This year we have to identify and deliver a savings plan of £20 million (around 6.5 per cent of our total budget), and over three years we need to save a total of £60 million. One of the areas the trust needs to look at is our workforce cost, which is the largest fixed cost, at over 60 per cent of turnover. This year we will need to remove 200 posts, while protecting front-line delivery of quality patient care. We also anticipate that further consultations will take place in the coming years, with about 500-600 posts in total removed over the next three years.”
