A study of the 147 NHS foundation trusts in England has found the number of those in financial trouble has nearly doubled in a year from 21 to 39.

Monitor is also investigating a further eight for potential licence breaches for issues including performance failures and financial problems.

SOURCE BBC NEWS: 'Worrying shortage of senior NHS nurses'The NHS has lost nearly 4,000 senior nursing posts since 2010, putting patient care at risk, warns the Royal College of Nursing (RCN).
