Help shape the future of NHS Direct event held at Kings Fund, Cavendish Square, London
NHS Direct is the first national organisation to apply for Foundation Trust status. So far, the only Foundation Trusts are hospitals and mental health services. Becoming a Foundation Trust would allow NHS Direct to work more closely with its users. The organisation is actively looking for people to play a vital role in developing its services and to help shape the future of NHS Direct. NHS Direct would like the views of its stakeholders on how it will operate as a Foundation Trust. The public consultation on NHS Direct’s application to become an NHS Foundation Trust closes on Monday, 31st March 2008.
