NHS Merseyside is spending £65,700 on re-recruiting personnel for four Clinical Commissioning Groups, a freedom of information request has revealed.
The four groups are:
- Sefton CCG – approx. £23,200
- Halton CCG – approx. £11,600
- St Helens CCG – approx. £14,700
- Knowsley CCG – approx. £16,200
CCGs are replacing PCTs in controlling how money is spent at local hospitals.
Many of those who worked for NHS Merseyside may find themselves working for a CCG – but this still comes at a cost.
If this was reflective of all CCGs across the country then the cost of re-recruitment to the tax payer would be over £3.5 million.
