2(1)In the case of a nursing home which was in existence on 1st July 1928 the registration of a person in respect of that home shall not be cancelled on the ground that the provision of paragraph (f) or (g) of section 25 above are not complied with unless, in the case of a nursing home not being a maternity home, the nursing of the patients in the home is not under the superintendence of a qualified nurse who is resident in the home.

(2)For the purpose of sub-paragraph (1) above, a nursing home shall not be deemed to be a home which was in existence on 1st July 1928 if, in the case of a home which was carried on at that date by an individual, it has ceased since that date or ceases to be carried on by that individual solely, or, in the case of a home which was carried on at the date by a body corporate, it has ceased since that date or ceases to be under the charge of the individual under whose charge it was at that date.

3Where an offence, for the continuance of which a penalty was provided, has been committed under any of the enactments repealed by the Nursing Homes Act 1975 or this Act proceedings may be taken under this Act in respect of the continuance of the offence after the commencement of this Act, in the same manner as if the offence had been committed under the corresponding provision of this Act.

4(1)The Secretary of State may—

(a)by regulations make such transitional provision as he considers necessary or expedient in connection with any enactment contained in this Act which derives—

(i)from Part I or III of Schedule 4 to the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983; or

(ii)from the amendments to the Nursing Homes Act 1975 made by Part II of that Schedule ;

(b)by order repeal any provision of a local Act passed on or before 13th May 1983 if it appears to him that the provision is inconsistent with or has become unnecessary in consequence of any such enactment or of regulations made under any such enactment;

(c)by order amend any provision of such an Act if it appears to him that the provision requires amendment in consequence of any such enactment or of regulations made under any such enactment or of any repeal made by virtue of this sub-paragraph.

(2)An order made in pursuance of sub-paragraph (1) above may include such incidental or transitional provisions as the Secretary of State considers are appropriate in connection with the order.
