Barts Health NHS Trust calls in finance help squad

England's largest hospital trust is to call in specialists to help it tackle its "biggest ever financial challenge".

Sources at Barts Health NHS Trust have told BBC London if the trust did nothing it could face being taken over by outside administrators.

The trust had planned to save £77m this financial year but after three months it is already £15m behind its target.

It is already talking about cutting about 1,000 posts.
