What will be in place to help NHS/Virgin Care Ltd employees understand local authority culture?

It is great to have staff with experience across the two systems so we can share and learn from each other. At Devon County Council we will be looking at how best to adapt our culture to ensure it works for staff who are part of the NHS, and in turn for public health nursing staff to adapt to Devon County Council’s culture.

We are held an event to welcome staff to Devon County Council which provided the opportunity for staff transferring to Devon County Council to ask questions and hear from Members and staff about working for a local authority.

And we are building on the experience gained when Public Health staff transferred from the NHS to Devon County Council in 2013, identifying what worked well, and where improvements could be made.
