This Order makes transitional provision to allow a practitioner whose name is not included in either such list but who

(a)on 30th May 2003 was assisting in the provision of such services and

(b)had applied on or before that date for inclusion of his name in the supplementary list of health board but that application had not been determined,

to continue to assist in the provision of those services until either

(i)the application is determined, or

(ii)1st August 2003,

whichever is the earlier date.
