EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Plymouth Hospitals National Health Service Trust (Establishment) Order 1993, which established the Plymouth Hospitals National Health Service Trust.

Article 2 changes the name of the trust to the University Hospitals Plymouth National Health Service Trust.

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 It removes reference to section 5 of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 (which has been repealed) and removes the reference to the particular establishments and facilities from which the trust carries out its functions.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 increases the number of non-executive directors, in addition to the chairman, that the trust must have from 5 to 6. It also requires one of these non-executive directors to be appointed from the University of Plymouth.

Article 5 omits the definition and specification of the trust’s “operational date” as it is of no on-going relevance.

Article 6 revokes articles 6 and 7 of the Plymouth Hospitals National Health Service Trust (Establishment) Order 1993 as they relate to the period before the operational date and are of no on-going relevance.

Article 7 makes consequential provision to remove a definition that is of no on-going relevance.

A full impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as it has no effect on private sector or civil society organisations, and no significant effect on the public sector.
