LONDON, January 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to comments by the head of NHS Shared Business Services, John Neilson, that more NHS administration should be outsourced to India to save money, global information and communications technology company CSS Corp, with centres in Europe, India, Australasia and the USA, has issued the following statement today.

"As the UK Government clearly recognises by already having 700 people employed in India through NHS Shared Business Services, outsourcing administrative functions can lead to huge cost savings, allowing for more money to be invested in patient care.

"When the NHS is trying to save GBP20bn in efficiencies by 2014, it makes sense for public bodies to be looking at the most cost-effective solutions.

"As we know from our experience in employing over 5000 people across 20 locations worldwide, what matters is the quality and capability of the companies to which any work is outsourced, something which should be at the forefront of Ministers' thinking."

CSS Corp Senior Vice President EMEA, Todd Whaley, said today.
