List of NHS Regional Health Authorities (pre-1996)


List of NHS Regional Health Authorities (pre-1996)

From 1974 to 1996 the NHS in England was administered by Regional Health Authorities. The regions closely followed the areas of the previous Regional Hospital Boards established in 1947, but in many cases they were renamed.

Each Region was subdivided into District Health Authorities, whose disposition as at 1991 is listed below.

1n 1996 the Regional Health authorities were reorganised as NHS Health Authorities (q.v.).

An Order in 1994 re-organised these into 8 Regional Health Authorities [http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si1994/Uksi_19940683_en_2.htm] [http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si1994/Uksi_19940684_en_2.htm] [http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si1994/Uksi_19940683_en_4.htm] , as follows
