The decision to dismantle a failing London NHS hospital trust could cost taxpayers almost double the amount originally estimated. The South London Healthcare trust, which included hospitals in Bromley, Woolwich and Sidcup, has been dissolved after amassing huge debts.
The Evening Standard reports that the shake-up will end up costing £466 million. Originally the cost was estimated at £265 million.
