National Health Service Database Subscription
The National Health Service is the largest employer in the UK but is not a single homogenous organisation. Following devolution and major re-organisations in the past few years, the ways in which it is organised in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are continuing to diverge.
Our database covers senior and mid-level posts across all functions and areas of the NHS; this includes both the NHS Management, Medical/Clinical sides (Consultants) and Primary Care.
England – most services are now provided or commissioned at a local level via Independent Care Boards (ICBs) or at a secondary care level via Hospital Trusts. Public Health services are now provided by Local Authorities who also work with ICBs via Health and Wellbeing Boards to commission services jointly. There are also several new ‘Community Healthcare’ providers, in the form of Health and Care Trusts (NHS organisations) and Community Interest Companies (Social Enterprises). These organisations provide a range of community, mental health, primary care and nursing functions and sit alongside Local Authorities, ICBs and Secondary Care providers in many areas. These, along with some Secondary Care Acute Trusts run Community Hospitals, Clinics, Walk in Centres and some Dental services.
Scotland – has a simplified structure with Scottish Health Boards having control of all operational responsibilities within their geographical area. The Community Health Partnerships provide a range of community health services and they work closely with primary health care professionals as well as hospitals and local councils.
Wales – has established Local Health Boards and except for one remaining NHS Trust, they deal with all Primary and Secondary Healthcare services.
Northern Ireland – also has single organisations – Health & Social Care Trusts, which along with several other national bodies, deal with co-ordinating and providing all the regions Healthcare services.
