Organisation changes

Find out about proposed and legally effective changes to statutory health and social care organisations in instances of an acquisition, merger, split or restructure.

Proposed changes are those which ODS have been informed are due to take place by local, affected organisations and / or NHS England, but which are not yet formally approved. As such, the details of any proposed changes are subject to change, delay or cancellation. We advise that ODS data users periodically check this webpage for further updates.

Legally effective changes are those which have been formally approved, either by issue of a parliamentary Statutory Instrument or an NHS England approved Grant of Acquisition or Merger. As such, these changes have been reflected within ODS published data.

The succ.csv and succarc.csv files will need to be used to identify organisation changes that have taken place prior to the current financial year.

Legally effective changes listed below are those which have occurred in the current financial year only.

Formally approved name changes for statutory organisations which have occurred in the current financial year are also detailed below.
