Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations further amend the Health and Personal Social Services (Superannuation) (Additional Voluntary Contributions) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1999 (S.R. 1999 No. 294) (“the AVC Regulations”), the Health and Personal Social Services (Injury Benefits) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2001 (S.R. 2001 No. 367) (“the Injury Benefits Regulations”) and the Health and Personal Social Services (Compensation for Premature Retirement) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1983 (S.R. 1983 No. 155) (“the Compensation Regulations”).

Regulation 2 amends the AVC Regulations by inserting new definitions consequential upon changes to the Health and Personal Social Services (Superannuation) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1995 (S.R. 1995 No. 95) (“the 1995 Regulations”) and as a result of the Health and Social Care (Pension Scheme) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008 (“the 2008 Regulations”). The amendments to the AVC Regulations indicate which of the 1995 Regulations or the 2008 Regulations apply in any given case. In addition to the above, the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety is designated as the administrator of the AVC Scheme for the purposes of the Finance Act 2004 (see regulation 2(14)(b)).

Regulation 3 amends the Injury Benefits Regulations in the same way and for the same purpose as regulation 2 amends the AVC Regulations. In particular regulation 3(4) inserts a new regulation (regulation 2A) into the Injury Benefits Regulations so as to define the word “practitioner”.

Regulation 4 amends the Compensation Regulations so as to specify the amount of compensation payable by way of an annual allowance under those Regulations.
