Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust could soon be working closely with Hinchingbrooke Trust in a new money saving plan.

In a joint statement from Stephen Graves, chief executive of the Peterborough trust and Lance McCarthy, chief executive of the Hinchingbrooke Trust, based in Huntingdon, it was announced the two would be looking at ways of joining forces.

The statement said: “The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough health system faces a significant financial challenge, both now and longer term. Local health and social care organisations have been working together in recent months to identify ways in which we can work together to meet this challenge.

“The work undertaken to date has identified five main areas - one of which is Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust and Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust working more closely together. As a result we have decided to work together to review:  what savings could be jointly achieved by working more collaboratively, particularly focusing on ‘back office’ services; how we could collaborate clinically to develop a clinical strategy and improve outcomes for patients; potential organisational form.

“We have shared this news with our staff in both organisations today and have started a programme of open forums where staff can pose any questions or concerns they may have to their chief executive. We will be keeping staff informed of the review work as it progresses.”
