Disposal firm stripped of contracts over NHS waste scandal
Health minister Stephen Barclay announces Healthcare Environmental Services has lost its NHS contracts over the scandal.
Whilst not pretending to be an expert it does appear that HES has failed in it's 'core' business (for the NHS at least).
If this company had the capability to deliver when the contract was awarded it obviously no longer seems to have that ability. Why do the Department of Health fail take appropriate actions to monitor such contracts before they become a 'car crash'. There certainly seem to have been concerns for several months.
Does the NHS save any money by contracted out services in the long term?
