North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust plans to cut its workforce by the equivalent of 460 full-time staff between 2010 and 2015 - more than a quarter of the entire workforce.

Almost three-quarters of the staff cuts will be to clinical posts, including more than a third of all nurses and over a fifth of all medical staff. Ancillary and estates staffing levels will be cut by more than 70 percent.

Some of the overall reduction is due to staff being transferred out of the Trust.
