DH reveals latest projects in social enterprise scheme


The Department of Health has announced the 32 projects that will form the third wave of NHS organisations wishing to set up social enterprises, through the NHS “Right to Request” scheme.

The scheme gives public sector workers the opportunity to establish their own independent organisation supplying services to the NHS or local authority.

Unison senior national officer for health Mike Jackson described the scheme as a “leap in the dark for staff and patients”.
