Provider change for three small community services

Provision of three small community services transferred to Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) from Whittington Health on 1 July 2019.

The services are Tissue Viability (adults), Bladder and Bowel (adults and paediatrics) and Nutrition and Dietetics (adults and paediatrics).

The transfer was planned and delivered by the providers and Camden CCG, following a decision by its Governing Body last summer. The process has gone smoothly and there should be no disruption to services.

Whittington Health has written to all patients with open referrals to explain the change. All appointments remain unchanged, with clinics taking place in the same locations and at the same times.

Staff previously employed by Whittington Health have transferred to CNWL.

It is anticipated that aligning these services – which have synergy with CNWL’s other community services – will have benefits for both patients and clinicians.
