Imposition of conditions

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

20.—(1) Subject to regulations 22(4), 25 and 26 where—

(a)the premises specified in an application under regulation 5(1) are in a controlled locality, or are not in a controlled locality but are within 1.6 kilometres of any part of any controlled locality in which reside patients for whom a doctor provides pharmaceutical services or for whom a GMS contractor or PMS contractor provides dispensing services; and

(b)the granting of the application would, in the view of the Primary Care Trust, result in a significant change in the arrangements for the provision of pharmaceutical services, local pharmaceutical services or dispensing services in any part of a controlled locality,

the Primary Care Trust shall, where it grants the application, consider the conditions (if any) which are to be imposed in relation to that grant under paragraph (2), and pending the final determination of such conditions, shall not in consequence of the grant give notice to any doctor to discontinue the provision of pharmaceutical services or dispensing services to any patient.

(2) Where the Primary Care Trust considers that the provision of primary medical services by any provider of such services (other than itself) or pharmaceutical services by any chemist or local pharmaceutical services by any LPS chemist is likely to be adversely affected in consequence of a grant under paragraph (1), it may impose conditions to postpone, for such period as it thinks fit, the making or termination of arrangements under regulation 60 (or equivalent provision under the GMS Regulation or PMS Regulations) for the provision by a doctor or a GMS contractor or PMS contractor of pharmaceutical services or dispensing services to patients on the relevant patient list.

(3) Where a Primary Care Trust has imposed any conditions under paragraph (2), or the Secretary of State has imposed any conditions under regulation 29(18)(b), 32(10)(b) or 38(14)(b), those conditions shall be unaffected by the commencement or continuation of a pharmacy pilot scheme for the provision of local pharmaceutical services by the person whose application was granted subject to such conditions (or by a successor to that person who likewise provides local pharmaceutical services under that scheme).
