DH accused over NHS 'preferred provider' move

5th March 2010

The Department of Health has ordered all primary care trusts in the East of England to suspend all procurements for community services.

The step has ended a high profile cooperation and competition panel investigation that was likely to question the government’s decision to make the NHS a “preferred provider” ahead of the independent sector.

The panel had been investigating complaints from the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations and NHS Confederation Partners Network about NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, which had banned non-NHS providers from bidding to take over community services.
