DH may outsource elements of blood service

16th February 2011

The Department of Health is considering outsourcing key elements of the NHS blood service to the private sector.

The Health Service Journal has reported that the department’s commercial directorate has held talks with private providers about running parts of the NHS Blood and Transplant service. NHS Blood and Transplant survived the cull of arms length bodies in July 2010 but a second review was announced to look at how the service could become more commercially effective and which areas and functions could be contracted out.
