DH urged to publish consultant spending

5th June 2009

A report into 2008's public expenditure questionnaire, published by the health select committee, has called for the government to publish the amount the NHS spends on consultancy services.

The committee said the government should set out how much it spent on consultancy contracts, how long they lasted and what they covered. The report said the ten highest rates paid out by each NHS body should be published, in order to expose the highest spenders. The health service spent £308.5 million on consultants in 2007-08, although this data does not include the amount spent by foundation trusts.
