NHS NW London’s ‘Shaping a Healthier Future’ (SaHF) Payments to Management Consultants Since 2009/10 Now Exceed £71 Million
Colin Standfield of ‘Save Our Hospitals’ has assiduously submitted Freedom of Information requests in order to track NHS NW London’s SaHF payments to management consultants. Since 2009/10 to date the payments total £71,640, 908.65. Almost half of this cash has been paid to McKinsey and Company.
