800 jobs could go in quango cuts30th September 2010
HSJ has estimated that government plans to cut arm’s length bodies could reduce Department of Health spending by £250m and cost 800 jobs.
The leak to the Daily Telegraph of a Cabinet Office list of 177 bodies to be cut included 17 non-departmental public bodies funded by the DH and a further 14 bodies relating to health are also to be scrapped. HSJ calculated the cost of bodies or quangos directly funded by the DH using 2009-10 annual reports and believes the jobs toll could be as high as 800.
