Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust Placed In Administration

Monitor, the NHS Foundation Trust regulator, said that it has appointed two trust special administrators to “safeguard the future of health services” currently provided at the trust. The move comes after Monitor concluded that Mid Staffordshire was “clinically and financially unsustainable” after it was revealed it would need a subsidy of £73 million over five years to keep it afloat.

David Bennett, Monitor chief executive David Bennett, said: “It is important that people in Mid Staffordshire know that they can still access services as usual at Stafford and Cannock hospitals while the trust special administration process is on-going. “We have taken this decision to make sure that patients in the Mid Staffordshire area have the services they need in the future.”
