Health staff compensated

10th June 2009

Figures in the latest Audit Office report into the delivery of health and social services have revealed that more than £16m was spent in Northern Ireland to compensate health and social care staff involved in the re-organisation of the health service.

It also emerged that the figure is likely to rise to almost £90m, though the Department of Health spokeswoman said the restructuring should deliver annual savings of £53m. The Audit Office said the benefits of the reorganisation would inevitably take time to emerge.
