(This note does not form part of the Regulations)
These Regulations further amend the National Health Service (General Medical Services) Regulations 1992 (“the 1992 Regulations”), which regulate the terms on which General Medical Services are provided under the National Health Service Act 1977.
Regulation 34 of the 1992 Regulations makes provision at paragraph (1) for a Health Authority to make payments, in accordance with the rates and conditions determined by the National Assembly, to doctors who provide General Medical Services in its area.
From August 2000 vocational training for General Practitioners will no longer be funded from a Health Authority’s General Medical Services budget. Thereafter, a Health Authority will make payments in respect of allowances for training for General Practitioners in accordance with directions to Health Authorities concerning General Practice Registrars.
Accordingly, regulation 34(2) of the 1992 Regulations is amended to remove the reference to allowances for training doctors from the matters for which provision shall be made under paragraph (1) of that regulation.
1977 c. 49; see section 128(1) as amended by the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 (c. 19) (“the 1990 Act”), section 26(2)(g) and (i), for the definitions of “prescribed” and “regulations”.
