Advice given

Relevant Strategic Health Authorities
Relevant Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs) were abolished on 31 March 2013 as part of the Health and Social Care Act 2012. Their responsibilities have been taken over by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and the NHS Trust Development Authority. The relevant SHA is therefore removed and replaced with "the National Health Service Commissioning Board (NHS England) and the relevant clinical commissioning group.
Relevant Statutory Undertakers - Health Bodies
Please see: see attachment 1
Since April 1 2013, Primary Care Trusts ceased to exist and their functions have been taken over by CCGs and local area teams (LATs).
There are no changes to other trusts at present, although all NHS Trusts are due to become Foundation Trusts by 2014.
Office of Rail Regulation
The term refers to the Office of Rail Regulation which is the independent safety and economic regulator for Britain's railways. Their address is:One Kemble Street, London, WC2B 4AN). (Note: The 2013 Regs remove the Office of Rail Regulation for projects in England where a Regulation 6 notification is received after 6 April 2013.)
Public Health England
Public Health England have advised us that their address remains the same as that of the Health Protection Agency: Chiltern, Didcot, Oxfordshire, OX11 0RQ.
