It turns out that yet another person with experience of working at the DoH is being employed for their insider knowledge, Ramsay Health even admit this openly:
"Ramsay Health Care UK runs one of the largest Wave One Independent Sector Treatment Centre contracts on behalf of the NHS, which saw the development of nine new NHS treatment centres from Cornwall to Newcastle. In 2007 Ramsay were also awarded a large Wave Two contract to provide elective surgery to NHS patients in Cumbria and Lancashire. Ramsay also offers NHS services at their 21 acute hospitals as members of the Department of Health’s Extended Choice Network."
"Dr Peskett joins Ramsay from the Department of Health’s Commercial Directorate where she is currently Deputy Medical Director, on secondment from Keele University since September 2006.The government thinks that these kind of cosy arrangements will result in better value for money for the tax payer and better services. I think not.
Jane Cameron, Director of Clinical Services for Ramsay Health Care UK, said: “I am
delighted that Dr Peskett will be joining us to help continue our excellent record of clinical governance across our UK operations. As our NHS services continue to grow, Dr Peskett’s experience at the Department of Health will be a great asset to our company.” "
