Consultants belong in hospitals - not local government.

Full marks to UNISON East Midlands Region for exposing the cost of agency workers and consultants to local authorities in their area.

As I was saying the cost of consultants in local government is a real example of waste.

We do not need to pay people £500 a day and more to tell us things which are either self-evident or stupid. Far from limiting this waste though, the cuts agenda which will be pursued by the Tories (or by New Labour should a miracle happen at the next election) will be a boon to the consultants as they are called upon to tell us (at great expense) how to make savings.

Consultants belong in hospitals - not in local government...
