Mid Staffordshire General Hospitals NHS Trust is to cut more than 150 jobs to make savings of £10m next year. A spokesman said most of the job losses would come from managerial and support services to try to minimise the impact on patient care. The trust is expected to make a small surplus this year, but needs to make savings in the next financial year. It runs two hospitals - the 404-bed Staffordshire General Hospital in Stafford and the 107-bed Cannock Chase Hospital.
