£320,000 report into NHS North Yorkshire cutbacks "disappointing"

Two directors of the organisation which runs the NHS in North Yorkshire have described a report which has cost taxpayers £320,000 as "disappointing."

NHS North Yorkshire and local health trusts paid private business consultants KPMG to draw up plans to make multi-million pound savings in the county's health service.

But the report published today, reveals few specific details about where and when the savings will be made. Campaigners fear the county will be left with a second class health service, if large-scale cutsare made.
