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.
