Plans to cut NHS workforce rejected4th September 2009
The government has revealed it has rejected advice from consultants McKinsey and Company to save the NHS in England £20bn by 2014 by cutting the workforce by 10% over the next five years.
The plans were to see 137,000 clinical and administrative posts lost but the Department of Health said that many services actually needed more staff not fewer. Health union Unison acknowledged there needed to be new ways of being more efficient but accused McKinsey of using the “same old formulaic answers” of job cuts to make NHS savings.
