Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Act 2003

Section 84: Additional functions

206.Section 84 allows the Secretary of State to confer additional functions through regulations on the CSCI in respect of local authority social services in England. The social care sector is constantly changing, so this might necessitate giving additional functions to the CSCI which have not yet been identified and therefore cannot be dealt with on the face of the Act itself. The purpose of this power therefore is to ensure that sufficient flexibility is retained to ensure that the CSCI can be given additional functions by means of secondary legislation, where this would be desirable, in order to enable it to be responsive to changing trends in social services and social care provision.
