NHS Commissioning Board name change to NHS England

Letter from Secretary of State Jeremy Hunt agreeing to name change for NHS Commissioning Board.

Document

Detail

The Secretary of State has responded to Professor Malcolm Grant, Chair of the NHS Commissioning Board, to agree to his request for the NHS Commissioning Board to adopt the name ‘NHS England’.

The change of name is to ensure effective communications with the public in light of the prominent, public facing role that the NHS Commissioning Board is now taking on.

More detail is set out for the rationale in Professor Grant’s letter on the NHS Commissioning Board website.
