The trust's chief executive has said everything is being done to avoid making staff redundant.
David Snowdon said: "The trust is facing unprecedented requirements to make efficiency savings, with in excess of £7m of savings to deliver in the next financial year.
"We are doing everything that we can to avoid the need to make staff redundant, however the size of the financial challenge next year means that we are unfortunately unable to avoid that situation. "
