Hospitals furious at Lansley's debt claim
"Hospitals across the country turned on the Health Secretary Andrew Lansley last night, accusing him of making misleading claims that parts of the NHS were "on the brink of financial collapse" for party political gain.
"Senior NHS managers expressed anger that Mr Lansley had singled out 22 trusts, whose "clinical and financial stability" was being undermined by having to pay for prohibitively expensive private finance contracts - used to build their new hospitals.
"Mr Lansley claimed the trusts had contacted him saying that they "cannot afford" to pay for their schemes which were agreed by the previous Labour government."
