EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Royal Hospital of St Bartholomew, the Royal London Hospital and London Chest Hospital National Health Service Trust (Establishment) Order 1994 (“the Establishment Order”), which established the Royal Hospital of St Bartholomew, the Royal London Hospital and London Chest Hospital National Health Service Trust, the name of which was changed to Barts and The London National Health Service Trust in 1999.

Article 3 sets out the nature and functions of the trust as being to provide hospital accommodation and services and community health services. It removes reference to section 5 of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 (which has been repealed) and removes the reference to the particular establishments and facilities from which the trust carries out its functions.

Article 4 specifies the trust’s accounting date. It removes reference to the trust’s operational date as the trust has assumed all its functions.

Article 5 revokes articles 6, 7 and 8 of the Establishment Order as they relate to the period before the operational date and are of no ongoing relevance (article 8 specifies a sum for the purposes of a provision of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 which has been repealed).
