Cornish doctors and nurses could still be forced to work longer for less, even thought the government has effectively told bosses to drop the plans.

The Chancellor, Health Minister and Deputy Prime Minister have come out against regional pay.

But southwest hospitals including Treliske and Derriford think they have the power to carry on anyway.

Nick Clegg said: "Clearly the fact that we're not going to go ahead with local and regional pay - we've ruled that out - sends out a very clear signal to that consortium that of course you need flexibilities but that we're not going to move towards local or regional pay. I'm sure the NHS bosses in the southwest have heard that as clearly as anybody else."

But the leader of the Southwest Pay, Terms and Conditions Consortium, Chris Bown said: “Existing legislation permits NHS trusts freedoms in how pay, terms and conditions are arranged at a local level.
 
“The south west pay, terms and conditions consortium was established to explore ways in which these existing freedoms may be used to support sustainability in services and employment in the face of unprecedented challenges.
 
“This remains the case.”

Some hospital trusts have already dropped out of the consortium, but others are continuing to hold talks about how to cut save money.

They have already warned that they need to examine every aspect of their organisations to consider how to make savings.
