This sectionnoteType=Explanatory Notes has no associated

(1)Monitor must determine and publish the conditions to be included in each licence under this Chapter (referred to in this Chapter as “the standard conditions”).

(2)Different standard conditions may be determined for different descriptions of licences.

(3)For the purposes of subsection (2) a description of licences may, in particular, be framed wholly or partly by reference to—

(a)the nature of the licence holder,

(b)the services provided under the licence, or

(c)the areas in which those services are provided.

(4)But different standard conditions must not be determined for different descriptions of licences to the extent that the description is framed by reference to the nature of the licence holder unless Monitor considers that at least one of requirements 1 and 2 is met.

(5)Requirement 1 is that—

(a)the standard conditions in question relate to the governance of licence holders, and

(b)it is necessary to determine different standard conditions in order to take account of differences in the status of different licence holders.

(6)Requirement 2 is that it is necessary to determine different standard conditions for the purpose of ensuring that the burdens to which different licence holders are subject as a result of holding a licence are broadly consistent.

(7)Before determining the first set of the standard conditions Monitor must consult the persons mentioned in subsection (8) on the conditions it is proposing to determine (“the draft standard conditions”).

(8)Those persons are—

(a)the Secretary of State,

(b)the NHS Commissioning Board Authority,

(c)every Primary Care Trust,

(d)the Care Quality Commission, and

(e)such other persons as are likely to be affected by the inclusion of the conditions in licences under this Chapter as Monitor considers appropriate.

(9)Monitor must also publish the draft standard conditions.

(10)The Secretary of State may direct Monitor not to determine that the standard conditions will be the draft standard conditions.

(11)If, at the time Monitor discharges the function under subsection (7), the day specified by the Secretary of State for the purposes of section 14A of the National Health Service Act 2006 has passed or section 9 or 181 has come into force—

(a)in the case of section 14A of the National Health Service Act 2006, the reference in subsection (8)(c) to every Primary Care Trust is to be read as a reference to every clinical commissioning group;

(b)in the case of section 9, the reference in subsection (8)(b) to the NHS Commissioning Board Authority is to be read as a reference to the National Health Service Commissioning Board;

(c)in the case of section 181, the reference in subsection (8)(d) to the Care Quality Commission is to be read as including a reference to its Healthwatch England committee.
