Be interesting to see the outcome of this but it's hard to imagine they can make it worse than it is but only time will tell.

I agree with you there gleneagles.  Circle, the company that has won the bid to run the hospital has a good track record in the 2 treatment centres they currently run. They are a Jersey based organisation.
