you do realise that the consultant costs in HSSD's numbers are for personnel providing mdeical services... not management consultants. I guess they could stop bringing in locum cover and specialist nursing etc, not sure that would be a vote winner though. John Gollop is right, somebody has to pay for the services that are being provided. Does anyone know of a healthcare system that isnt struggling with cost??
