Top hospital to be closed as cash crisis engulfs NHS
"A leading teaching hospital faces closure as a result of the financial crisis gripping the NHS. Managers at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs three major hospitals in London and two smaller units, is considering a proposal to shut St Mary's, Paddington, and sell off the site to property developers.
"Six firms of architects, among them the Danish company CF Moller, have been asked to provide a quote for turning St Mary's into 3,000 flats. Imperial wants to know how much it could raise from the sale of the site before it makes a final decision.
"The health trust, one of the largest in the country, is effectively bust. It faces debts which have grown from £40m to £100m this year and must implement radical cuts to balance its books."
