Inter Authority Transfer

Overview

Inter Authority Transfer (IAT) is an automated process that removes the manual procedures associated with NHS Staff Transfer Forms, and reduces the data entry needed following the appointment of staff from other NHS Trusts. 


The IAT process revolves around each employee’s Portable Data Set (PDS) which will accompany an individual from one NHS organisation to another.
