The Department of Health have re-imposed a hard deadline of 31 March 2010 regarding the national standards for provider reform which PCTs are required to agree with SHAs in respect of their proposals for the future of their provider arms.
You will be aware that the Operating Framework for 2010/11 set
demanding national standards for provider reform which leave PCTs
to innovate locally to create a system that best meets local
needs. You will also be aware that without prescribing the
outcome, the Department of Health has re-imposed a hard deadline of
31 March 2010 for PCTs to agree with SHAs their proposals for the
future of their provider arms.
