NHS financial crisis may lead to roll back of flexi-work scheme and private acquisition
Deficit in NHS fund has lead to cancellation of subsidized flexible working for NHS doctors, the part-time flexible working scheme which was introduced four years back by the Government is being rolled back due to financial crisis in the NHS fund. The Private hospitals have also showed interest to acquisition of NHS funded government hospitals which are working in a horrible situation due to financial crisis.

Last year the government hospitals had a very high overall debt and the private management is working out plans by which they can help the hospitals in England to overcome their deficits. The publishing of the half-yearly report of hospital trust had shown a deficit totaling to £ 948 million which shows clearly the situation of trusts in England.

This reason of financial deficit is the cause of possible roll back of flexible working doctors who are mostly made up of women doctors who wanted to have a flexible career after child birth and through this scheme more than 2500 doctors are working since 2001.
