Birmingham and Solihull Hospital Beds B
MORE than 700 hospital beds are set to be slashed across Birmingham and Solihull in new cost-cutting plans to save millions by health bosses.
The cuts are planned across major acute hospitals in the city including Queen Elizabeth, Heartlands, Good Hope, Solihull and City hospitals.
It would mean about 15 per cent of the 4,500 hospital beds could go.
Dr Patrick Brooke, medical director for Solihull NHS PCT said: “We know that we need to reduce financial costs, The amount we can’t afford is to the equivalent of 740 beds.
