Workers To Be Made Redundant At Private Hospital in Aylesbury

Staff at a private hospital in Aylesbury are said to be shocked, saddened and angry after being told they were losing their jobs this week.
The union UNISON also thinks that the Royal Bucks may even close.
The 170 year old hospital has been under pressure for a few months now.
We heard back in July how many workers were not paid on time due to financial issues.
They were later paid in full, but this week, Mix 96 has been told that many staff received letters saying they would be made redundant.
Steve Bell, from the union UNISON, said: "I am in regular touch with workers, who are union members, from the Royal Bucks hospital.
"I have received a number of telephone calls today to say, there is a letter in the post being sent to them as we speak, that there is no money to pay their wages tomorrow.
“They are shocked, saddened and angry at the way they have been treated as they want to care for people and get on and do their jobs.”
He added: "We would appeal to the employer to think again and see that if what is due to the workforce at Bucks is paid tomorrow.”
Mix 96 has tried to get in touch with the hospital but so far, they are refusing to talk.
