Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

58Provisions as to medical officers of health

(1)The council of every county shall, after consultation with the councils of districts wholly or partly within the county, formulate arrangements for securing, whether by means of a combination of districts or otherwise, that every medical officer of health subsequently appointed for a district shall be restricted by the terms of his employment from engaging in private practice as a medical practitioner.

(2)The county council shall, as soon as may be, send a copy of the instrument embodying the arrangements to the Minister and to the council of every such district, and every such council shall be at liberty to make representations thereon to the Minister.

(3)If a county council within six months after being required to do so by the Minister fail to formulate such arrangements as aforesaid, the Minister after consulting the county council and the councils of all such districts may formulate any such arrangements as the county council might have formulated.

(4)Where such arrangements as aforesaid have been formulated, then, on a vacancy occurring in the office oi medical officer of health for any such district, it shall be a term of the appointment of a person to fill the vacancy that he shall not engage in private practice as a medical practitioner:

Provided that, if upon application made to him by the council of the district in connection with any such proposed appointment the Minister, after considering the arrangements formulated and any representations which may be made to him by the county council or by the councils of other districts concerned, is satisfied that such a term cannot conveniently form part of the terms of the proposed appointment, he may dispense with the foregoing requirement as respects that appointment on such conditions as he may think fit.
