In a nutshell: This article examines the transfer of specialist palliative care services from NHS Berkshire West to Sue Ryder. The Department of Health’s initiative Transforming Communty Services provided the framework for transfer, which enabled the PCT to focus on commissioning rather than both providing and commissioning services. The complexities and challenges of transferring a service from the NHS to the voluntary sector are examined.
