Use of the name ‘NHS England’ by the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB)
|From the 1st April the NHS Commissioning Board will change its name to NHS England. The main aim of NHS England is to improve the health outcomes for people in England. It will set the overall direction and priorities for the NHS as a whole. Chairman Malcolm Grant said: “The name ‘NHS England’ gives people a greater sense of what the organisation is because it is more closely aligned to the responsibilities of the new organisation, which are to achieve real improvements for patients for every pound invested by the nation in the NHS”.
On 27 March, friends and colleagues took the time to say ‘goodbye and good luck’ to Angela Donnelly, manager of the Staff Library for almost 3 years.
Angela will be greatly missed by many library users for her generous support, innovative ideas, energy and enthusiasm. Her notable achievements have included showcasing the artwork of our talented workforce, through exhibition at The Barnaby Art Festival in 2011 and 2012; achieving various NW and HR awards and steering the Library to attain its highest ever Library Quality Assurance Framework score.
It’s true to say that Angela won’t be sorry to say goodbye to her daily 90 mile round trip from her home near Wrexham. Instead she will be working for the National Trust at Erddig, which is a mere 15 mins away. We wish Angela all the best for the future and don’t forget to look out for her if ever you’re visiting Erddig this summer!
Please note the Staff Library will be closed on Friday 29 March and Monday 1 April. If you wish to renew your books please do so by contacting us on 01625 661362 or email us at email@example.com
Our ‘out of hours service’ for those people who have already applied for 24hr access, will enable admittance to the self-service and IT facilities by using swipe cards.
We look forward to seeing you again on Tuesday 2 April from 08.30 – 5.00pm

The authors of this article estimate the effect of the end of life criteria on the NHS in England and Wales since they were introduced in 2009. They quantify the impact of raising the cost effectiveness threshold for end of life drugs and find that the effect on other NHS services could be substantial.
The Cavendish Review was announced in February 2013. This document outlines the areas the review will be investigating, including: considering what can be done to ensure that all people using services are treated with care and compassion by healthcare and care assistants in NHS and social care settings; and making recommendations about the recruitment, training, management, development and support of those staff, who do a challenging but vital job in health and care settings.
