In 2010, while discussing British health reforms at a healthcare industry conference in the USA, Mark Britnell of KPMG was quoted:
"In future, the NHS will be a state insurance provider not a state deliverer", and that "The NHS will be shown no mercy and the best time to take advantage of this will be in the next couple of years."

Stephen Dorrell was in a conflict of interest row after taking up a post with KPMG which was considering bidding for a £1billion deal to manage the medical records of all patients. Mr Dorrell resigned as chairman of the House of Commons Health Select Committee.

Mr Dorrell voted for the Health and Social Care Act in 2012, which opened the NHS to private firms. He said “There is no ­incompatibility between being an MP and being a KPMG adviser.” but said he would resign at the 2015 May election, after a six month overlap between the two jobs.

KPMG’s healthcare practice earned more than £2billion in revenue in 2014.
