How will front line staff be affected? Will I still see the same nurse/carer etc.?

We are lucky to have such a talented and hardworking team of health and care professionals delivering community services in B&NES. Their skills, experience and compassion are vital for the delivery of high quality care so we expect the vast majority will continue in their current roles when the new contract begins on 1 April although they may be working for a different organisation.

Any members of the workforce that are required to transfer to another organisation under TUPE regulations will retain their existing terms and conditions, pay, and pension.

The CCG and the Council will ensure that everyone receiving health and care services in B&NES has continuity of care and experiences clear improvements as the community’s priorities begin to be delivered.
