STRUCTURE: North Lincolnshire Community Services officially transferred into Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Hospitals Foundation Trust on 1 April.

The move has taken place under the transforming community services programme, which required all primary are trusts to split from their provider arms by the end of March.

Karen Jackson, chief executive of the foundation trust, formally welcomed this staff group which delivers both adult and community services across North Lincolnshire.

She said: “We are delighted to transfer North Lincolnshire Community provider services which will help and support the continued development of a stable and sustainable foundation for local healthcare.

“We would like to welcome the staff to the trust and feel there are real benefits to patients in providing more integrated and streamlined services and opportunities for staff in the future.”
