£1BILLION NHS sell-off scandal: Tory MP works for firm targeting huge health service deal

‘A leading doctor has demanded Stephen Dorrell quit as either an MP or an adviser to a private firm targeting a lucrative NHS contract.

The Tory is in a conflict of interest row after taking up a post with KPMG which is considering bidding for a £1billion deal to manage the medical records of all patients.

Mr Dorrell quit as chairman of the powerful House of Commons Health Select Committee in June.

He told his local party he would step down at May’s general election because his new job was “incompatible” with his role as a £67,060-a-year MP.

But the Mirror can reveal he starts his new job on Monday and will be in both posts for six months.

The move sparked fury, with National Health Action party co-leader Dr Clive Peedell insisting Mr Dorrell can only do one role.’
