Back in 2010 when the Labour Government's massive expenditure on Management Consultants was an election issue
the head of the Management Consultancies Association (MCA), Alan Leaman, said:

“The NHS spends 0.3% of its budget on management consultancy and the vast majority of this goes on projects that save the NHS money and improve patient care.”

“On average, for every £1 spent on management consultancy, benefits worth the equivalent of £6 are returned to the client. And the amount spent per employee on management consultancy by the NHS is roughly one-tenth that spent by private sector organisations,”

Leaman added. “An organisation as complex and fast-changing as the NHS is entitled to benefit from the high quality advice and delivery that is offered by MCA member companies.”

The NAO reported that across 17 central government department £1,000m was spent on 2009/10 on management consultants.
