One to add to the list

November 04, 2009 9:32 AM

In our recent guide to the UK's semi-autonomous public bodies (available here), we asked readers to let us know if they spotted an omission. We tried our utmost to capture all the relevant organisations, but there are just so many that it's possible we missed some.

When we made that request to readers though, we didn't expect public bodies to volunteer themselves. But yesterday we got a call from 'Community Health Partnerships', an independent company wholly owned by the Department for Health (see here).  

Its About Us page describes it as such:

Community Health Partnerships (CHP) develops, creates investment in and helps deliver innovative ways to improve health and local authority services.

Its main activity has been to deliver the Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) Initiative
[Private Finance]* which provides clean, modern, purpose-built premises for health and local authority services in England.

(*addition our own)

While we will of course investigate Community Health Partnerships in detail before we include them next year, they appear to be a prime candidate. If you believe you know of a similiar organisation that we may have missed, please let us know by leaving a comment below, or sending an email to info@taxpayersalliance.com
