In lieu of Monday Briefing this week we have a Wednesday Update!
As you know, the timetable for our relicensing work has been delayed due to the NHS England delays. We now also know that, due partly to the General Election, and partly due to timing of national meetings, that we will hear about our potential new AHSN License (which kickstarts the application process) in July.
As Deborah mentioned in her last email, we have put back our timetables accordingly, so that any related workforce changes would not come into play until after the terms of the new licence are confirmed in July. We will of course keep you updated on this.
In the meantime, business continues. New or reviewed posts are being created in order to fill vacancies as colleagues move on, or to deliver our 17/18 business plan. As this happens, the Senior Executive Team continues to review each vacancy to determine how best to fill posts.
Because of this ‘pause’ – our Project Board has not met so frequently over the past couple of weeks, and we are reviewing the future meeting frequency.
In our next staff meeting we can also discuss our team communications and whether weekly updates are still something you appreciate during this phase.
Any questions, please do ask.
