ITV NEWS: Weston Hospital won’t be sold to private bidders

Controversial plans to sell off Weston General Hospital to another NHS Trust or a private organisation have been dropped.

It will now either merge with another NHS Trust or be acquired by an NHS Foundation Trust within a 50 mile radius. The successful bidder will be announced in the autumn.

MP for Weston-super-Mare John Penrose says its a move that will benefit the hospital.
