Departments: Consultants

Volume 468: debated on Thursday 29 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health which management consultancies his Department has engaged in the last 12 months, broken down by departmental directorate; and which such companies also work (a) as and (b) for providers to the NHS. (164617)

The Department does not collect information on contracts with management consultants in the format requested. To do so would attract disproportionate cost.

A new system will be introduced in April 2008 called SHOWA, which will be able to gather such information for the Department.
