A new report into the NHS in North Yorkshire has been attacked for a lack of specifics on how to tackle the county's £12 million pound debt.

John Blackie monitors the NHS for the county council and was among the critics.


He was among those, which included Kevin McAleese, the chair of the board meeting of NHS North Yorkshire, who criticised the report for a lack of details of which services could be affected as they try to make savings.

The report was produced with the help of consultants KPMG, who were paid 320-thousand pounds for their work.

Chief Executive of NHS North Yorkshire and York Chris Long tells us what the report means for patients.
But Jim Clark from North Yorkshire County Council says the new Clinical Commissioning Groups will have be given the task of finding the savings.
