More NHS jobs go in shake-ups.

There will be "significantly more" job losses as a result of an NHS shake-up, Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt said yesterday.

Ms Hewitt told MPs that moves to slash the number of bodies running services across the country had led to 100 compulsory redundancies so far.

But she refused to speculate how many more could be forced out as she was questioned on NHS finances by the health select committee.

"There have been 100 compulsory redundancies so far as a result of Commissioning a Patient-Led NHS," she told the MPs.

"There will be significantly more than that' we do not know how m any."
