Ian McInnes, the Chief Executive, said the cuts would not affect the A&E department and their main priority was that patient care did not suffer.

It comes off the back of a series of jobs cuts across the NHS in England in recent years as health bosses have struggled to balance the books.

And to think the Wirral NHS has got 450 million sitting pretty, whilst others have to cut jobs to save a measly 10 million.

Something isnt right there!
