SHAs could be made redundant22nd January 2009
The NHS Confederation has called for a rethink of strategic health authorities’ roles in light of the new Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The CQC, which begins work from April, will have massive powers that the NHS Confederation fears will increase duplication between SHAs and regulators. The CQC is now reviewing its proposed enforcement powers, which include fining trusts and closing services. In 2009-10, those powers will only apply to NHS providers in relation to healthcare associated infections but the full range of powers will apply to all health and adult social care providers from April 2010.
