"The NHS will last as long as there are folk left with the faith to fight for it"
Aneurin Bevan

Tuesday, 31 May 2011


So far the Bill is still (just) pausing, but the changes to the NHS are still going ahead. The dates at the moment are:

July 2012
SHAs will be abolished. This is a new deadline announced after the "pause" was announced (previously it was April). This may now have changed (see below).

April 2013
PCTs will be abolished. According to HSJ the abolition of SHAs could be delayed until this date.

April 2014
NHS Trusts will be abolished. All hospital trusts will have to be Foundation Trusts by this date.
