Commentary on sections

Part 1: the Commission and Care Services
Section 31: Arrangements entered into by local authority or health body: services to be registered

119.This section makes it clear that, although a service commissioned by the body in question need not exist as a registered care service at the time the contract is entered into, the service must be a registered one by the time it is actually provided.
