(nope – not satire)
The Cameron government has awarded an £80 million NHS contract to a private firm despite the company charging taxpayers £7 million more than an NHS consortium bidding against it:
The government, however, hasn’t said why the firm – Alliance Medical Group – won the contract despite its bid being so much more expensive.
That’s because the bidding process was for some reason secret.
Ian Syme, co-ordinator of pressure group North Staffordshire, said of the awarding of the contract:
“This whole process has been shrouded in secrecy. We don’t even know who – expert adviser or public representative – were on the panel.”
Please feel free to share. And comment.
