Hinchingbrooke Hospital taken over by private company

Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon has become the first NHS hospital in Britain to be managed by a private company.

The hospital was once labelled a "financial and clinical basket case" when it ran up debts of nearly £40m.

Now the management of the hospital has been taken over by the healthcare company Circle.
