A TOTAL of 180 jobs are set to be axed at the Royal Free Hospital over the next financial year.
The Hampstead hospital has issued a statement saying it will look to "disestablish" the posts as part of cost-cutting measures and that two thirds of the jobs will be lost through retirement and the finish of fixed term contracts.
A spokeswoman said: "These plans were agreed last year and unions and other staff have been consulted.
"The Royal Free makes every effort to retain staff or enable them to find new employment, including help with CV preparation, help finding another post, career counselling and offering a retraining grant of �500.
