New report exposes wrongheadedness of outsourcing at North West Anglia NHS

A new report rips apart North West Anglia NHS NHS Trust’s plans to outsource catering and other services at Hinchingbrooke and makes the case to bring all facilities services back in house across the employer.

Author John Lister launched From Outstanding to Average? at an online public meeting.

The report takes apart the case to outsource the award-winning catering service, drawing from the experience of three decades’ failed privatisation of NHS services and the latest research showing that a sell-off would be “most unwise.”

It  lambasts the complete lack of a business case for outsourcing and argues that at the very least the Trust should consider an in-house bid for the multimillion-pound contract.
