Management consultant costs to be published11th June 2009
The health select committee has called for the daily rates of management consultants employed by NHS organisations to be published.
MPs said they acted after the 2007-08 NHS accounts revealed that primary care trusts, acute trusts and strategic health authorities – excluding foundation trusts - were spending £300m a year on consultants. The MPs have asked the foundation trust regulator Monitor to provide similar information for foundation trusts. Department of Health officials told MPs the day rate for senior consultants was in excess of £1,000.
