Management consultants hired by GPs

10th March 2011

Family doctors are enlisting the help of private management consultants to implement the government’s health reforms.

More than two dozen GP consortia have sought advice from McKinsey – which has been working with GP pathfinder groups piloting the new arrangements - while NHS managers have enlisted PricewaterhouseCoopers to assess when GPs will be ready to take on commissioning services. The reforms will see around £80 billion of the NHS budget pass into the hands of GPs but many organisations and unions are concerned about the increasing role of the private sector.
