Happy Friday all!

It is this time of the week again – time to gather the most relevant news and articles relating to public sector spin-outs and put them all at your disposal!

This week has been especially prolific in discussions upon the future landscape for spin-outs in the context of the NHS reform as well as the need to enhance social value in public services’ commissioning and delivery.

Two of the articles featured on this roundup have been also posted on our blog due to their direct relevance to the core vision and mission of the Transition Institute – Insightful pieces by TI Chair Allison Odgen-Newton and Craig Dearden-Phillips that really add to the debate!


Here are some of the key stories from the past week:
