NHS hospital loans under PFI in question

A political row has erupted over the legacy of PFI for the health service as one hospital trust faces insolvency.

South London Healthcare, a merger of three hospital trusts, is spending 14% of its income on repayments to a private finance initiative (PFI).

The government says the financial problems are caused by a PFI scheme signed off under Labour.
