NHS bodies to merge under workforce and technology reforms

NHS Digital, NHSX and Health Education England will be absorbed into NHS England as part of plans to develop the workforce and improve technology across the NHS in England.

Health and Social Care Secretary Sajid Javid announced the merger whilst describing his long-term strategy for the recruitment, training and retention of healthcare staff coupled with a digital transformation of working practices. This strategy will sit alongside the NHS workforce plan Ministers previously commissioned to report in spring, looking at what the workforce of the future should look like.

The Department of Health and Social Care says merging the three organisations with NHS England aims to drive progress forward by bringing them under one roof for the first time.
