HSJ understands Mark Britnell, NHS director general for commissioning and system management, is to join consultancy KPMG. 1202875_57385_306

He is on gardening leave from the Department of Health.

He is expected to play a leading role in KPMG’s European health practice.

Mr Britnell has been the leading reformer in the NHS management team. He launched the world class commissioning drive, and has always been a staunch advocate of private sector involvement in the NHS.

He recently established the co-operation and competition panel to ensure fair access to the healthcare market.

Academic Chris Ham said the panel’s draft interim guidance read as if it had been written “by a neo-liberal economist on speed”.

Mr Britnell also established the framework for securing external support for commissioners (FESC) to encourage private sector involvement in world class commissioning.

He was unavailable for comment.
