NHS enterprise groups doubts

24th July 2007

Doubts have been raised over the long-term viability of social enterprise groups within the NHS, according to new research from the Department of Social Policy University of Durham.

The report, which was commissioned by UNISON, is based on interviews with healthcare professionals, trades union representatives, national policy advisors, voluntary organisations and the Department of Health. However, the government remains keen to boost the development of social enterprise groups, which run along business lines with profits they make are reinvested back into the community or developing services.
