  15. NHS trusts merger: Your views

    Facebook

    You've been having your say on Facebook about the takeover of Sherwood Forest NHS trust by Nottingham.

    Peter Johnson said he's "scared" of what will happen next.

    "Patients already waiting operations and appointments, will have to either go to Notts hospitals as the Newark folk do now and this will increase the waiting lists etc. No big is not beautiful," he wrote.

    Alan Cassady-Bishop had questions about Sherwood's debt.

    "If the PFI was set up to fund the building, does this mean the "debt" has been paid anyway? Were the payments to the PFI firms set at a reasonable time limit anyway? Or did the "investors" see it as a nice little earner for decades? Whose bright idea was it to build a hospital with money that was impossible to maintain repayment?"
