The Auditor General has published his response to the Welsh Government's white paper ' A sustainable Wales: better choices for a better future'.
Welsh public bodies are spending less on consultants but cannot demonstrate value for money in how they plan, obtain and manage consultancy services, says a report published today by the Auditor General.
Since its introduction in 2003, significant sums of money have been spent implementing an amended NHS consultant contract in Wales. Despite this, the intended benefits for the health service are not being fully realised, largely because of weaknesses in consultants' job planning arrangements. Those are the conclusions of a report published today by the Auditor General for Wales.
