NHS Direct became an national health service trust on 1 April this year. The NHS Direct Board is responsible for monitoring the performance standards, which we have agreed with them. Senior officials will be meeting with the chief executive and senior management team quarterly to review performance against the objectives set out and agreed in their business plan. NHS Direct NHS Trust will lay before Parliament its annual report and accounts shortly.
