Local authority wants law changed to enable it to sell its OH services tosmall-and medium-sized firmsNottinghamshire County Council is pressing for a change in the law to allowit to sell its OH services to local businesses. Personnel director Terry Gorman said there is strong demand from small- andmedium-sized enterprises, which cannot afford their own OH department, to buythe service from the council. “We cannot do work in the private sector,” said Gorman. “Wehave a first-rate OH service; we have been asked to provide that service toparts of the private sector, but we cannot.” Gorman is using his position as new president of the local governmentpersonnel managers’ body Socpo to press for a clause in the current Local GovernmentBill to permit such trading. This would bring councils into line with NHStrusts, many of which are providers of outsourced OH services to the privatesector. His call comes as Health Secretary Alan Milburn put pressure on more NHStrust OH departments to sell their services to local employers (see right). The RCN’s OH adviser Carol Bannister said Nottinghamshire council couldlearn from the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham. “They have a hugenumber of contracts but they have always increased the number of staff. If theyget a new contract, they get a new nurse.” Pressure for change in local councils comes from the Best Value scheme,under which they must provide better value for money than the private sector.Socpo argues that it is unfair competition as the private providers can takelocal authority business, but not vice versa.
