(1)Where—

(a)a Primary Care Trust or an NHS trust is, or is to be, a party to any existing or proposed LA delegation arrangements, and

the relevant authority may designate the trust as a Care Trust.

(2)A trust may, however, only be so designated in pursuance of an application made to the relevant authority jointly by every prescribed body.

(5)The designation of a body as a Care Trust under this section shall be effected by an order under section 16A of the 1977 Act or section 5(1) of the 1990 Act (as the case may be) which—

(a)(in the case of an existing body) amends the order establishing the body so as to change its name to one that includes the words “Care Trust”, or

(b)(in the case of a new body) establishes the body with a name that includes those words;

and any revocation of its designation shall be effected by a further order under that provision which makes such provision for changing the name of the body as the relevant authority considers expedient.

(b)enabling the relevant authority to terminate appointments of persons as members of a Primary Care Trust or of the board of directors of an NHS trust (or of a committee of such a trust) where the authority is of the opinion that it is appropriate to do so in connection with the designation of the trust as a Care Trust;

(c)requiring the consent of the relevant authority to be obtained before any prescribed change is made with respect to the governance of a body so designated;

(d)for supplementing or modifying, in connection with the operation of subsection (3), any provision made by regulations under section 31 of the Health Act 1999 (c. 8) (partnership arrangements between NHS bodies and local authorities).

(9)The designation of a body as a Care Trust under this section shall not affect any of the functions, rights or liabilities of that body in its capacity as a Primary Care Trust or NHS trust (as the case may be).

(10)In connection with the exercise by a body so designated of any relevant social services functions under LA delegation arrangements—

(a)section 7 of the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970 (c. 42) (authorities to exercise social services functions under guidance of Secretary of State), and

(b)section 7A of that Act (directions of Secretary of State as to exercise of such functions),

shall apply to the body as if it were a local authority within the meaning of that Act.
