Health Act 1999

Section 63: Supplementary and consequential provision etc.

354.This section enables the Secretary of State to make any transitional, supplementary and consequential provisions necessary to give effect to the Act. For example, it will be used to make amendments consequent upon the introduction of Primary Care Trusts.

355.Sections 1 and 45 will bring the GP fund-holding system to an end in England and Wales and in Scotland respectively. It is the intention to use the provisions of section 63 to make an order or orders setting out arrangements for the transition from GP fund-holding. The transitional provisions will cover arrangements for closing the fund-holding accounts of residual fund-holders; the transfer of those assets, rights and liabilities that need to be transferred to the Health Authority (in England and Wales) or Health Board (in Scotland); and any provision for those that are to remain with the former fund-holders.
