Leiden University hospital to cut 660 jobs

Leiden University hospital is planning to cut its workforce by 660 jobs over the next three years, generating savings of €40m, news agency ANP reports.

Board chairman Ferry Breedveld told ANP he expected most of the jobs to be lost naturally. It is highly probable no more than 100 staff would actually be sacked, he was quoted as saying.
The hospital, known by the acronym LUMC, said it had been forced into reducing its workforce because of government spending cuts.
