BMA call for private management consultants to be ditched

The BMA has welcomed the Health Select Committee's call for the government to gather central information on the cost to the NHS of private management consultants.

In a speech yesterday (03.06.09), the chairman of the BMA's Consultants Committee, Dr Jonathan Fielden, called for private management consultants to be "ditched" from the NHS. According to a recent estimate, the English NHS spent £350 million on independent management consultants last year.
