The costs of changing the name ‘Department of Health’ to ‘Department of Health and Social Care’ will be kept to an absolute minimum. The current estimate for costs associated to the name change will be no more than £1,000.

Stationery, such as business cards and headed paper, will only be changed when stock is used up.

Signage in the Department’s London headquarters is digital only. Physical signage in the Leeds headquarters will only be changed later in 2018, as part of a planned refurbishment of the building.

Amends to the website and intranet have not incurred additional costs.
