HMP Liverpool: Britain's 'worst prison' cuts healthcare budget
Healthcare budgets have been cut at a prison described by inspectors as "Britain's worst".
A damning report on HMP Liverpool on Friday said it was "squalid".
The BBC has now learnt Lancashire Care NHS Trust is leaving its contract with the jail in March citing the £6.7m it is paid to provide healthcare as "unsustainable".
NHS England has offered new providers a five-year contact at £6.5m per annum - £200K less than Lancashire Care.
It has said when a new provider is found, it can bid for additional money to develop the service.
