Stafford Hospital NHS trust to be dissolved

A final report into the future of Stafford Hospital has recommended the trust that runs it should be dissolved.

The master plan for the hospital's future said neighbouring authorities would take over responsibility for some services.

It said a new midwife-led unit would be set up which would provide a reduced service from the one currently on offer.

Trust administrator Hugo Mascie-Taylor said they had provided Stafford and Cannock with a "period of stability".
