This Is Wiltshire: Former NHS Wiltshire staff find new jobs Former NHS Wiltshire staff find new jobs

Most of the staff at NHS Wiltshire have secured new jobs in other NHS organisations.

NHS Wiltshire will be abolished on March 31 to be replaced by a Clinical Commissioning Group covering the county.

The Government’s shake up of the NHS will also result in public health moving from health trusts to local councils and a new watchdog, called Healthwatch.

Strategic Health Authorities will also be abolished but new organisations will also be formed including the National Commissioning Board, which will have Local Area Teams, and Commissioning Support Units, which will provide a range of support functions to CCGs.

A number of staff at NHS Wiltshire took redundancy soon after the Government announced the abolition of Primary Care Trusts in 2010.

A board meeting of NHS Wiltshire and NHS Bath and North East Somerset (Banes) on February 27 heard that 70 staff would be transferring to Wiltshire CCG, 29 were going to Banes CCG, 70 would be going to the Central Southern Commissioning Support Unit and 19 to the National Commissioing Board.

Twelve staff are in consultation about transferring to NHS Property Services while 20 IT staff will be transferred to other organisations.

That leaves eight staff with no identified job but the board was told by director Christina Button that she was confident that most staff would find suitable alternative jobs in the NHS.

David Smith, a non-executive director at NHS Wiltshire, said: “It begs the question if the new system is going to be any less bureaucratic than the existing one?”

Why is this news? Staff will be protected by existing arrangements, including pension rights and terms of service, so what changes?
