Councillor's warning over £9 million loan to King's Lynn hospital
A West Norfolk councillor has warned that the allocation of a multi-million pound loan to Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital could make its financial position even worse.
Earlier this week, the government announced it was lending just over £9 million to the hospital to help fund upgrades to facilities at the Gayton Road site.
Although hospital bosses welcomed the funding, they also admit the trust is operating with a year to date deficit of £12.2 million, slightly below the figure that had been forecast.
