Intel picks up cash from UK government

The UK’s minister of health has revealed how much his department lashed out on management consultancy and IT since the 7th of May this year – and it turns out one of the beneficiaries is chip giant Intel.

Simon Burns, the minister, revealed that 16 consultancies – including Intel – were beneficiaries of British taxpayers’ largesse, although it’s not clear what the consultants did for their money. Intel does have a healthcare division with patient monitoring gizmos.
