The Department for Health has said it is disappointed at Circle’s decision.

Whitehall has responded to the private company’s announcement to pull out of Hinchingbrooke Hospital three years into a 10-year contract with dismay.

A spokesman for the Government department said: “We’re disappointed Circle has made this decision.

“There will now be a managed transfer of the running of the trust and patient care will not be affected.”
