Removal from supplementary list of names of medical practitioners not providing services

6.—(1) Where a Board, with a view to securing that arrangements are such that all persons in the area who avail themselves of general medical services receive adequate personal care and attendance, has determined in accordance with the provisions of this regulation that a medical practitioner whose name is included in a supplementary list has for the preceding 12 months not assisted in the provision of general medical services personally for persons in the area, it may, after giving 30 days' notice in writing of its intention to do so, remove the practitioner’s name from such list, unless the Scottish Ministers direct to the contrary, in accordance with the following provisions.

(2) In calculating the period of 12 months referred to in paragraph (1) the Board shall disregard any period during which the medical practitioner was suspended

(3) If in the case of a medical practitioner whose name is included in the supplementary list–

(a)a Board has determined that the practitioner has not for the preceding 12 months assisted in the provision of general medical services personally for persons in the area, and

(b)section 19(7) (which deals with suspension of the registration of a doctor) of the Act applies,

the Board may after giving the medical practitioner 30 days' notice in writing of its intention to do so, remove his name from the supplementary list, unless the Scottish Ministers direct to the contrary, in accordance with the following provisions.

(4) Before making any determination under paragraphs (1) or (3) the Board shall afford the medical practitioner an opportunity to make representations to it in writing or, if requested, orally, to a committee appointed by the Board for the purpose, of which committee at least one-third of the members shall be medical practitioners.

(5) A medical practitioner to whom notice has been given under paragraphs (1) or (3) may within 21 days of receiving such notice appeal to the Scottish Ministers against the decision of the Board and, pending the decision on any such appeal, the Board shall not remove the practitioner’s name from the list by reason of the determination against which appeal has been so lodged. The notice of appeal shall be in writing and shall set out the facts and contentions on which the practitioner intends to rely. If the Scottish Ministers allow the appeal, they shall direct the Board not to remove the name of the practitioner from the list by reason of the determination appealed against.

(6) Nothing in this regulation shall affect a medical practitioner who is performing a period of relevant service and no determination under this regulation shall be made in respect of any such doctor until 6 months after he has completed the said relevant service.
