Section 30: Designation of priority neighbourhoods or premises

169.Section 30 permits the Secretary of State or National Assembly for Wales to make regulations allowing Health Authorities to designate neighbourhoods, particular premises, or particular descriptions of premises for the purposes of Local Pharmaceutical Services pilot schemes. Under subsection (2) the regulations may, in particular, make provision about which such places Health Authorities may designate and in what circumstances. The regulations may allow Health Authorities to defer applications to provide Part 2 Pharmaceutical Services relating to designated places. To avoid designations being prolonged inappropriately, regulations may also deal with the cancellation of designations, and may permit the Secretary of State or the National Assembly for Wales to direct that a designation be cancelled.
