Pirate FM has learnt Treliske has already spent £10,000 drawing up plans which could cut wages for doctors and nurses.

It is one of nineteen southwest hospitals considering making staff redundant if they do not accept changes.

Health minister Simon Burns does not think most will break away from national talks. He said, "The ongoing negotiations are about ensuring patients and taxpayers get the maximum value of money from every penny spent on the NHS. The negotiations are not about a pay cut and we would not support one.

"Pay systems must evolve. The Trusts in the southwest wish to work and negotiate with the trade unions to agree changes not to dismiss and re-engage staff."

Unions are outraged after it was revealed staff at the hospitals involved could be made redundant and made to reapply for their jobs.

Treliske has refused Pirate FM's request for an interview insisting that plans around "rewarding and incentivising staff" were still at an early stage, insisting that no changes would be made without consultation.

A spokesperson said that the £10,000 was to cover "professional advice and administration." If all the Trusts involved have made similar contributions it would mean £190,000 has been poured into the scheme so far.
