NHS foundation trusts to get new freedoms21st January 2011
NHS foundation trusts will be given new freedoms under the new health bill including being able to merge much more easily.
Combining two foundations will no longer require de-authorisation and a fresh application to become a foundation but will instead be granted with the approval of more than half the governors from each trust. The bill also deletes entirely the cap on private income, freeing foundations from limits on their commercial activity. The Foundation Trust Network said the bill will help FTs achieve their potential.
