A spokesman from the CCG told a local newspaper: “It is not possible to employ sufficient expert staff to every eventuality. That is why there are times when we need specialist help.”
Oxford East Labour MP Andrew Smith said: “These costs of consultancy are huge, especially given the financial pressures the NHS is under locally.
“As it stands, they seem to be spending more than planned on consultancy, yet realising less in savings and efficiency than planned.”
Oxfordshire CCG is facing a £6.1 million overspend.
