A PUBLIC meeting on the proposal to put the management of Hinchingbrooke Hospital into private hands is to be held today (Wednesday, September 2). As reported by The Hunts Post last month, the Strategic Health Authority has agreed that the management of the Huntingdon hospital can be put out to tender. The plan is to make the hospital financially efficient. If the Hinchingbrooke scheme succeeds the Department of Health has said it will become a model for other hospital trusts to follow. INFORMATION: The public meeting is from 2pm to 5pm at the Assembly Rooms, Hinchingbrooke House, Brampton Road, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire PE29 3BN. Future meetings will be in November.
