Status

The term provision is used to describe a definable element in a piece of legislation that has legislative effect – such as a Part, Chapter or section. A version of a provision is prospective either:

  1. where the provision (Part, Chapter or section) has never come into force or;
  2. where the text of the provision is subject to change, but no date has yet been appointed by the appropriate person or body for those changes to come into force.

Commencement Orders listed in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ box as not yet applied may bring this prospective version into force.

(2)The body ceases to have members and a board of governors.

(3)Subject to the following provisions of this Schedule, this Act applies in relation to the body as it applies in relation to an NHS trust established by an order made under section 25.

3Nothing in this Chapter affects the continuity of the body or of its property or liabilities (including its criminal liabilities).

Board of directorsE+W

4(1)This paragraph is subject to any provision made under section 52D(4) or (7) or 65L(4) or (5).

(2)The number of executive directors and non-executive directors of the NHS trust is the number of executive directors and non-executive directors provided for in the constitution of the NHS foundation trust.

(3)On the de-authorisation order taking effect, the persons who were the chairman and executive and non-executive directors of the NHS foundation trust become, for the unexpired terms of their appointments, the chairman and executive and non-executive directors of the NHS trust.

Name and functionsE+W

5(1)This paragraph applies only to a body which is an NHS trust by virtue of an order made under section 65E(1), and is subject to any provision made under section 65L(4).

(2)“NHS trust” is substituted for “NHS foundation trust” in the name of the body.

(3)The functions of the NHS trust (to be undertaken from the day on which the de-authorisation order takes effect) are to provide goods and services for the purposes of the health service.

AccountsE+W

8(1)The accounting date of the NHS trust is 31 March.
