Spending has halved since last year as the new commissioning landscape begins to evolve.

PCTs almost halved their consultancy spend last year from £261m to £138m as the new commissioning landscape begins to evolve.

Research by market intelligence firm Laing and Buisson’s NHS Financial Information 2012 showed consultancy spend across the NHS in England and Wales fell by a quarter from £605m in 2009/2010 to £452m in 2010/2011.

SHAs were found to have spent “considerably less” on external consultants, down from £53m to £35m last year.
