Health quangos face being abolished

24th September 2010

Some 30 health organisations have been included in a list of 177 taxpayer-funded bodies drawn up by government ministers to be scrapped in a "bonfire of the quangos", according to reports in The Daily Telegraph.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, which regulates fertility clinics, and the Health Protection Agency, which offers advice on environmental hazards and infectious diseases, have been included on the Cabinet Office’s list, according to the newspaper. Other bodies affected could include the Advisory Committee on Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infections, and the Advisory Committee on the safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs.
