EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, issued free of charge, correct drafting errors in the National Health Service (Quality Accounts) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 (“the 2017 Regulations”), which amended the National Health Service (Quality Accounts) Regulations 2010 (“the 2010 Regulations”). The amendments made by the 2017 Regulations increased the information which has to be included in the quality accounts published annually by NHS service providers. The amendment to regulation 4(2) of the 2010 Regulations taken with the reference to section 8(3) of the Health Act 2009 (“the 2009 Act”) in the opening words of new paragraph (2B), made the new information prescribed information for the purposes of both sections 8(1) and 8(3) of the 2009 Act. This had the effect of imposing the new requirements not only on NHS trusts and foundation trusts but also on other providers of NHS services. This was not the intention, and these Regulations ensure that this information is only prescribed for the purposes of section 8(1) of the 2009 Act, so that the requirements only apply to NHS trusts and foundation trusts (excluding ambulance trusts).

A full impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no, or no significant, impact on the private, voluntary or public sector is foreseen.

(1)

2009 c.21. Section 8 was amended by paragraphs 173 and 177 of Schedule 5 and paragraphs 112 and 114 of Schedule 14 to the Health and Social Care Act 2012 (c.7).

(2)

S.I. 2010/279. Regulation 4 was amended by S.I. 2012/3081, and 2017/744.
