ALMOST 180 jobs could be lost at cash-strapped Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Trust.
Bosses at the trust, which runs hospitals in Wakefield, Pontefract and Dewsbury, are planning a round of job cuts to slash £24m from the budget to balance the books this year.
An internal memo seen by the Express says between up to 178 posts could go in total.
The job cuts are among a range of measures including reduced working hours, unpaid leave and possible outsourcing of services to save cash at Mid Yorkshire.
The trust has begun a 90-day consultation with its staff over the plans.
