(2)A decision by the FHSAA to do what is mentioned in subsection (1) is referred to in this section as the imposition of a national disqualification.

(3)The FHSAA may also impose a national disqualification on a practitioner if it dismisses an appeal by him against the refusal by a Primary Care Trust to include him in such a list.

(4)The Primary Care Trust may apply to the FHSAA for a national disqualification to be imposed on a person after the Primary Care Trust has—

(a)removed him from a list prepared by it of any of the kinds referred to in subsection (1)(a) to (d), or

(b)refused to include him in such a list.

(5)Any such application must be made before the end of the period of three months beginning with the date of the removal or of the Primary Care Trust’s refusal.

(6)If the FHSAA imposes a national disqualification on a person—

(a)no Primary Care Trust or Local Health Board may include him in a list of any of the kinds prepared by it from which he has been disqualified from inclusion, and

(b)if he is included in such a list, each Primary Care Trust and each Local Health Board in whose list he is included must remove him from it.

(7)The FHSAA may at the request of the person upon whom it has been imposed review a national disqualification, and on a review may confirm it or revoke it.

(8)Subject to subsection (9), the person may not request such a review before the end of the period of—

(a)two years beginning with the date on which the national disqualification was imposed, or

(b)one year beginning with the date of the FHSAA’s decision on the last such review.
