The licence covers all organisations and persons covered by the 2012 Health and Social Care Act.
The CLA Licence for NHS England has been renewed for the period April 2012 - March 2013. The licence, explanatory leaflet, and copying guidelines notice are all available on the CLA website at http://www.cla.co.uk/licences/licences_available/nhs/nhs_england
1. the definition of Licensee has been extended to include organisations and persons established under or pursuant to the Secretary of State for Health’s powers under the 2012 Health and Social Care Act. This means that everyone who was covered under the previous licence is covered under this one too, even if they have transferred employer (e.g. public health staff). Equally, the new licence does not cover anyone who was not covered under the previous licence.
2. there is a new clause (2.3) in the Licence which states that we should only create our own digital copies (by scanning) after making reasonable endeavours to check that we don’t already have access to a digital copy (e.g. via subscription).
