It includes the transfer of public health to local authorities, the establishment of Health and Wellbeing Boards, and the development of GP-led commissioning consortia. It also gives NICE new duties, responsibilities and freedoms, including extending its remit into social care  Thus the health and social care sectors will change significantly when The Health and Social Care Bill receives parliamentary approval.
