Sir David Nicholson sets out next steps for transition

NHS chief executive Sir David Nicholson has written to NHS staff about transition arrangements, following the passing of the Health and Social Care Bill.

Sir David says the passage of the Bill provides clarity and certainty about future direction and that ‘the onus now switches to the health and care system and the complex and challenging task of implementing the changes on the ground’.

He outlines the ‘important progress’ already made in laying the groundwork for transition and emphasises the strong platform on which the NHS can build.
