Sherwood Forest Hospital Trust's near-£234m debt is wiped by the government as part of coronavirus support package
Almost £234m has been wiped from debts owed at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Trust as part of the government’s support package for dealing with coronavirus.
The trust was left with huge Private Finance Initiative (PFI) debt following the rebuild of King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton-in-Ashfield, and renovations and upgrades to Newark Hospital.
Sherwood MP Mr Mark Spencer said: “Health Secretary Matt Hancock has wiped off over £13bn-worth of debt from NHS trusts across the country. This will allow hospitals and their trusts to be able to focus on defeating coronavirus.”
