Section 37: Premises from which pilot services may be provided

181.Section 37 deals with the relationship between pilot schemes and pharmaceutical services provided under Part 2 of the NHS Act 1977. Section 37(a) permits regulations to be made preventing the provision of pilot scheme services from the same premises as pharmaceutical services under Part 2 of the 1977 Act, except as provided in the regulations. Section 37(b) permits regulations to make provision about the inclusion, re-inclusion, removal and modification of entries in pharmaceutical lists held under Part 2 of that Act. It is envisaged that such regulations may be used to establish arrangements for determining whether, and to what extent, pilot scheme providers are to have a preferential right to return (or transfer) to Part 2 services in respect of particular premises on ceasing to provide services under a pilot scheme.
