STAFF at Stamford Hospital’s pathology department are facing being made redundant as part of a review.

Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is carrying out a review of the department and is consulting with the 10 members of staff who work there.

The trust says patient services at the hospital will not be affected if the changes go ahead.

John Randall, medical director at Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “There will be some staff placed ‘at risk’ of redundancy due to the organisation change policy but every effort will be made to minimise redundancies.

“There will be no affect on the services offered to patients at Stamford Hospital.

“There will be no final decisions made until the end of the consultation period when all factors have been taken into consideration.

“The wider clinical strategy for Stamford Hospital is yet to be determined and will be subject to separate public engagement.”

The 30-day consultation is due to end on May 11 and involves staff, all of the trust’s consultants and members of the executive board of directors.

If the changes go ahead, blood samples currently analysed at Stamford Hospital would be sent to Peterborough City Hospital.
