NHS quangos to be axed

22nd September 2009

The Liberal Democrats have said that cutting spending on health service quangos could result in savings of £500 million a year.

Spending on NHS quangos currently stands at over £1.2 billion annually. Lib Dem spokesman Norman Lamb told the party's annual conference: "Rather than dictating to experienced NHS staff about how to improve our hospitals, we should listen to what they have to say. The Liberal Democrat message is to get rid of nanny and put sister in charge."
