National Blood Service: Reorganisation

Volume 457: debated on Wednesday 7 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment she has made of the effect on staff of the way in which changes to the National Blood Service estate were communicated to them. (121801)

The National Blood Service (NBS) has established a group comprising senior managers and staff-side representatives to discuss the implications of the changes and how to implement policies designed to reduce any adverse impact on staff, such as redeployment. The NBS expects to manage many of the post reductions through natural turnover and reduce the impact on staff to the absolute minimum.
