    London health trusts get cash warning

    This report from today's Independent looks at the deepening crisis in our NHS under Blair & Co:

    The memos to primary care trusts (PCTs) in London, issued from the office of John Bacon, NHS finance manager, warn trusts against "unexpected over-achievement" in their efforts to cut waiting times to a maximum of 18 weeks by 2008. "PCTs will expect trusts to co-operate in these difficult times. In particular, trusts should not assume 'referral' is 'authorisation to treat' in these circumstances. If they do so, having received a request to assist a PCT in managing workload, they should not presume payment will be made for activity that could have been delayed, without breaching maximum waiting times."
