By May this year five new health and social services trusts will be established, they will shadow 18 existing hospital trusts until these are abolished in April 2007.
The region's four health and social services boards will be replaced in April 2008 by strategic health and social services authority. A chief executive for this will be in place by May 2006 and the organisation will be operational in April 2008.
