 Health sector managers are aiming to make savings of £20 billion by 2015.  This seems to me to be a huge amount of money to be saved in a service which already seems to be overstretched.

The current thinking is however that some units will close and that more patients will be treated in the community. It is hoped that a smaller number of hospitals in easily accessible locations will provide better care than a large number of hospitals with varying levels of service.   

Despite initial protests against the idea, with no doubt more to follow, further closures are now most likely inevitable.
