Hospital Debts Hope
3:41pm 17th July 2012
Pirate FM has learnt Cornwall's biggest hospital could have its debts written-off.
The Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has hinted at a review if Treliske wins its bid for Foundation Status, during questions from local MPs.
St Ives' Andrew George has been lobbying government.
He says, "This legacy debt was built up at a time when Cornwall's health service was severely underfunded. It would be the only right and proper thing to do".
