Care Act 2014


559.Paragraph 15 requires HEE to co-operate with the Secretary of State in the exercise of his public health functions. Public health functions are defined in section 1H of the 2006 Act.

560.Sub-paragraph (2) amends section 72 of the 2006 Act so that HEE is treated as a NHS body for the purposes of that section. Section 72 requires NHS bodies to co-operate with each other in the exercise of their functions. This means that all NHS bodies, along with those bodies included within the definition of NHS bodies for the purpose of this section such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and the Health and Social Care Information Centre, will be required to co-operate with HEE in the exercise of their functions, and in turn HEE will be required to co-operate with them.

561.Sub-paragraph (3) requires HEE and the Care Quality Commission to co-operate with each other, and HEE and Monitor to co-operate with each other.

562.Sub-paragraph (4) gives the Secretary of State a power to specify in regulations other bodies with which HEE must co-operate, and bodies which must co-operate with HEE.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
