Document What is meant by CPLNHS on the Compensation Retirement section of the AW8 application form?

CPLNHS stands for 'Commissioning a Patient Led NHS'. It refers to the initiative whereby Primary Care Trusts were encouraged to focus their efforts towards commissioning and away from being providers of health services.

If you were part of this initiative and are making a staff member redundant through CPLNHS, you should indicate this on the AW8 application form.
