At times of organisational change it is particularly important to ensure that support, guidance, training and development opportunities are made available to all staff employed by NHS organisations within Wales in accordance with best practice. The wider NHS in Wales will be responsible for assisting in the redeployment of employees from any NHS organisations affected by organisational change.

Scope of the policy

This policy replaces the Organisational Change Policy published in March 2009.

The Organisational Change Policy will apply to all NHS Wales employees.  It will apply to all situations of organisational change, whether these are internally generated service reviews or externally approved mergers or de-mergers.
