Independent NHS, Simpler Quangos

April 16, 2018 10:30 PM

A new report out by the TaxPayers’ Alliance shows that the NHS could save nearly £800 million by merging various NHS management bodies.

The report advocates reducing the number of quangos from 19 to 7:

  • This would save approximately £760 million.
  • This would also release top managerial time to improve efficiencies in the system.
  • And granting more independence to NHS England would free it from meddling politicians.
  • Savings to the Department of Health and Social Care could amount to a further £40 million.
