The head of health at Unison has said that they were "seriously misled" over the privatisation of Hinchingbrooke hospital in Cambridgeshire.
Christina McAnea said that "cast iron assurances" had been made that Circle, who run the hospital, would not make a profit until the hospitals debts had been paid, which is not the case.
Circle chief executive Ali Parsa defended the hospital's record, saying it now has a chance to survive and do "fantastically well".
She said that she expected the hospital would pay off its debt within the next ten years.
