Question 4 -  CRC and NPS staff are being brought back together under the new model. In your view how is this transition being managed?

 

Responses:

 

Lots of unknowns at the moment so it is hard to comment. I think CRCs are more in the dark than NPS colleagues, as all communications regarding the transition are coming from the NPS and many of the links on the documents the CRC staff can’t access as we are not on the system.

 

Poorly so far. Despite less than a year to go information is not being shared so staff know what to expect. Lack of confidence in transition plans.
