NHS hospital in Cambridge to be run by private firm

The running of an NHS hospital in Cambridge will be taken over by a private company in February, in a £1bn, 10-year deal.

The company Circle will assume the financial risks of making Cambridgeshire's Hinchingbrooke Hospital more efficient and paying off its £40m debt, although the hospital will remain part of the NHS.

Branwen Jeffreys reports.
