McKinsey hired to review NHS tech leadership

The HSJ has reported that a contract published by the Department of Health and Social Care showed that it had hired the management consultancy McKinsey to work on a significant NHS technology review and paid nearly £600,000 for two month’s work.

A review of the way NHS Digital, NHSX and NHS England/Improvement work together to drive digital transformation across the NHS was ordered by Matt Hancock in July 2020. The review is being led by new NHS Digital chair Laura Wade-Gery, but the contract reveals that McKinsey was also hired to work on the review. The two-month contract, which finished at the end of September, was worth £588,000.
