NHS 'needs a 10% cut in staffing'

The NHS would need to slash its workforce by around 10% to help meet planned savings of 20 billion, it has been reported.
A study, commissioned from consultancy firm McKinsey and Company, said the workforce would need to be cut by 137,000 to meet efficiency savings by 2014.

It said clinical staff would have to go alongside administrators.
The report, recommends a range of possible actions such as a recruitment freeze starting in the next two years, a reduction in medical school places from October and an early retirement programme to encourage older GPs and community nurses to make way for "new blood/talent".

The report was presented to the Department of Health in March this year, it carries the department's logo and has been disseminated among senior NHS managers.

The study said 2.4 billion could be saved if hospitals with the lowest levels of staff productivity got up nearer the average.
