St George's Hospital have announced £55 million spending cuts over the next financial year - it has been estimated this will lead to a 10% cut in the workforce - meaning cuts to frontline services at St George's Hospital.
Sadiq Khan MP said, “This government was elected on a promise there would be no cuts to frontline health services. They have broken that promise.
“1 in 10 healthcare professionals at St George’s – from doctors to nurses to support staff – will lose their jobs. This will affect local residents.
“Far from protecting frontline services, these cuts will cause huge damage to health services in South London.
“I am upset and shocked, at the Tory-led government’s cuts that will undermine services at St George’s Hospital.
“I will be working with hospital management and hospital staff to ensure that the Government’s cuts do not affect the quality of frontline healthcare or force too many hard-working healthcare workers to lose their jobs.”
