organisations please refer to NHS Choices [3]here.

contact information on the NHS Choices website at the following web link:

Dear FOI, England (NHS ENGLAND),

I think you misunderstood the question.
Liverpool Health Partners is not a prime health provider but if my research is correct a talking shop
Each hospital trust gives 60K and puts a "mate" on the board. Which does nothing.

It would be bad enough if this was just Liverpool, but it is not. They pop up everywhere throughout the UK under different names, often the same people on the boads.

If I were a cynical man, I would say they were nothing more than a conduit to syphon money from the NHS.

So can you provide me with the department that deals with Merseyside hospital health trusts. This needs looking into

Regards
GT

Yours sincerely,

G Taylor
