The NHS trust that runs Leicester Royal Infirmary and Leicester General Hospital has been reducing its £35m ($52m) a month wage bill by cutting the number of staff working hours.

As well as cutting hours, all 12,000 staff were suggested to consider cutting the number of hours they work, taking career breaks and ‘buying’ extra holidays.

The target is expected to save £58m ($86.87m) in the next year, trust managers said.

Doctors, nurses, unions and other staff are disappointed about the trust’s decision, according to dailymail.co.uk.
