Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has announced that about 250 jobs are to go in a bid to cut costs. Chief executive Dr Frank Harsent has confirmed £20m savings need to be found before the end of March. It is anticipated the majority of the job losses will be implemented through natural turnover and retirements, transfer of roles into community-based care, and making the best use of the skills of existing staff.
