Regional offices plan for NHS changed

1st June 2012

Plans for regional offices to replace primary care trusts and strategic health authorities have been scaled back by the NHS Commissioning Board.

Original plans for 50 local offices are now to be amended so that there will be only 27, that is one fewer than the 28 SHAs that were formed in 2002, before they were slimmed down to 10 by health secretary Patricia Hewitt. Ian Dalton, deputy chief executive of the NHS CB, said the 27 teams would be different to the bodies that had gone before them.
