As Cornish doctors and nurses face a possible pay cut, Pirate FM has learnt that directors at Treliske took home a total of nearly 600 thousand pounds last year.

The Royal Cornwall is one of 19 south-west hospitals considering forcing through savings.

Stuart Fegan from the GMB union in the Duchy says: "An absolute toxic mix of devastation for our economy which is already hard-pressed. To add insult to injury, when you see the kind of money that's going out of the public sector to pay for directors in these trusts".

The hospital is considering cutting staff's wages by making them redundant, then rehiring them.

Bosses insist that it is early days but that the review will look at directors pay too.

Lezli Boswell is Chief Executive of Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust. In a statement, she said: "The south west pay, terms and conditions consortium is looking at ways NHS Trusts can use resources more efficiently in response to the serious financial and operational challenges we all face.

"The project is specifically looking at how our largest expenditure - staff pay which includes directors pay - can be better designed to ensure our organisation can secure financial health and clinical services now and in the future.

"It is very early days in the consortium discussions and no decisions have been taken on any specific measures on pay, terms and conditions. I am committed to working positively and constructively with our staff once plans start to take shape."

John Skewes from the Royal College of Midwives wants pay and conditions to be left alone: "It's a question of knowing the cost of everything but the value of nothing really. I think what will happen is that this will begin to degrade the service and actually the midwifery service and the maternity service in Cornwall is very good, it's in the top ten percent across the country".
