ⓘ Community health NHS trust

As part of the English NHS programme of separating the provision of services from commissioning known as Transforming Community Services a number of community health NHS trusts were established when these services were separated from primary care trusts.

It was one of several taken options. In some places, public services were transferred to existing mental health trust or hospital. In the South-West of England was considerable pressure on staff to create social enterprises such as Peninsula health to undertake these services.

Campaigners in Gloucestershire have successfully challenged the decision on the establishment of social enterprises to provide health services in 2012.

Contracts to run the NHS and utility services subject to competitive tenders in accordance with the Law on health and social care 2012, so it is unclear whether these organizations will survive. NHS community health care sector, including services in the field of mental health is considered to be £ 9.7 billion - about 10% of the total NHS budget. This is a sector where competition with private providers such as Virgin health and serso is the most intense. There is a lot of pressure to move NHS services out of hospitals and into the community, but still most of these services funded by block contracts. There are measures of activity, but no outcome measures and no tariff NHS, so no financial incentives for providers for efficiency. It remains to be seen what impact the instigation of any qualified provider contracts for this sector.

The utilities have been repeatedly reorganized since the abolition of regional health authorities in 1996. Established as NHS trusts they were under the same mandatory condition to become a Foundation NHS trusts existing trusts, but it is unlikely many of them will be able to pass the tests in their current form.
