Firms beating GPs for contracts to run Darzi centres

3rd December 2008

The Department of Health has admitted that private firms are narrowly winning the race for contracts to run Darzi centres.

This follows earlier claims that GPs were ahead. National director of the GP access programme for England, Dr Mike Warburton, said that private firms make up 40% of short-listed bidders, compared with 36% from GPs. A further 13% consist of consortia of GPs and private providers. He also revealed that the credit crunch has not affected enthusiasm to bid for the contracts.
