After three years of building work the new Peterborough City Hospital is now open.
Peterborough: Bailout For City Hospital
The debt-ridden NHS trust that runs Peterborough City Hospital has been given £46 million.
The government funding will go towards the cost of running the hospital during the next year.
Peterborough and Stamford NHS Hospital trust is currently around £56 million in debt.
The trust is currently making payments to cover the cost of Peterborough City Hospital, which opened in November 2010 at a cost of £289 million.
It was funded by a Private Finance Initiative (PFI) investment of £335 million, which also paid for the Cavell Centre and City Care Centre.
Peter Reading, Interim Chief Executive of the trust said: "This is extremely positive news for the Trust.
In the last month we have succeeded in two objectives: receiving an acknowledgement by the Treasury that there are some Trusts with unaffordable PFI payments, and receiving the short-term funding that we required."
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fire Authority are asking residents if they'd support a rise of 1.9% to its proportion of council tax for 2017/18.
