NHS Transition - The Changing LandscapeThe Health and Social Care Act 2012 is changing the landscape of the NHS. Strategic Health Authorities, Primary Care Trusts and some Arms Length Bodies will be decommissioned as a result of this piece of legislation. Functions provided by these organisations will be transferred to either existing, or newly created, organisations.
This will mean staff transferring to these new organisations along with the functions they provide. Navigating this transition will be challenging due to the complex nature of the many functions and organisations involved. UNISON is committed to supporting its members through the changes; we recognise how tough it has been, and will continue to be, during this transition period.
