Health + social care spin outs

Lyn Bacon, Chief Executive, Nottingham CityCare Partnership CIC, says:

“Since becoming a social enterprise we are much more in tune with our stakeholders, and our staff have never been this engaged or motivated. Members of the team have genuine ownership, and the result is that they’re creative and not afraid to challenge traditional ways of thinking. Being in control means we’re able to provide a diverse range of services that truly work for people in our community. It’s opened our eyes to a new way of working.”


The Right to Run is for public sector staff thinking about taking up the opportunities being offered them to provide services themselves, independently of the public sector, by setting up a social enterprise. It aims to be of use to staff in Local Authorities, NHS Trusts and other public bodies; from frontline clinicians and corporate services professionals through to senior managers, board and council members.
