Jamie Reed – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department of Health

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Jamie Reed on 2014-04-30.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how much NHS England spent on tendering for clinical services in 2013-14.

Dr Daniel Poulter

NHS England has advised that it does not hold information on spend on tendering for clinical services. Staff payroll costs will form the majority of the cost of any tendering process and it is not possible to determine what proportion of each individual staff member’s time is spent on this work.
