This website is for staff affected by changes taking place as a result of implementation of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
The Health and Social Care Transition Programme affects 45,000 staff and more than 400 organisations across the NHS, Arm's Length Bodies (ALBs), Local Government, Public Health and the Department of Health.
It is delivering the Government's vision to reshape the NHS so that it is more patient-centred, led by health professionals and focused on delivering world-class health outcomes.
The abolition of Strategic Health Authorities and Primary Care Trusts, and the establishment of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), puts commissioning in the hands of GPs and local clinicians. New and more autonomous ALBs will deliver services according to national priorities, with local Government having a major new role in addressing local community health needs.
As a member of staff in the health and care system you may be moving to a new role with a new employer. This website aims to support the people transition by providing information about the process and the new organisations, details of the jobs available and by answering key questions.
If you need further advice on your individual circumstances or have any questions which aren't answered here, please speak to your local HR team or trade union representative.
