Within the report, there is a £577m savings plan which includes reducing the number of hospital beds by 300 and selling up to 19 per cent of the NHS’ estate.
BBC Radio Solent, which has seen the report, is also saying some patients will have to travel further for care including those on the Isle of Wight.

It is unclear what care may move or where the specific cuts will be made.
