Withdrawal of approval of out of hours arrangements under general medical services contracts and default contracts

63.—(1) Where—

(a)an approval of an out of hours arrangement granted under paragraph 18A of Schedule 2 to the 1992 Regulations is to be treated, pursuant to article 59, as an approval granted under the term of a general medical services contract which gives effect to paragraph 2 of Schedule 7 to the 2004 Regulations (or under the equivalent term of a default contract); and

(b)on or before 31st March 2004, a Local Health Board had notified a medical practitioner of its withdrawal of approval of that arrangement under paragraph 18B of Schedule 2 to the 1992 Regulations but that withdrawal had not yet taken effect,

paragraphs (2) to (4) shall apply.

(2) In a case where, on 31st March 2004—

(a)the time for appealing under paragraph 18B(6) of Schedule 2 to the 1992 Regulations had expired without any appeal being made; or

(b)an appeal had been made under that paragraph but had been determined or withdrawn before the end of the period of two months beginning with the date on which the notice of withdrawal was sent by the Local Health Board under paragraph 18B(4) of that Schedule,

the withdrawal shall take effect as a withdrawal of approval under the term of the general medical services contract which gives effect to paragraph 4 of Schedule 7 to the 2004 Regulations (or under the equivalent term of the default contract) on the date on which it would have taken effect had paragraph 18B(7) of Schedule 2 to the 1992 Regulations not been revoked.

(3) In a case where the time for appealing under paragraph 18B(6) of Schedule 2 to the 1992 Regulations had not expired on or before 31st March 2004, the notice of determination of withdrawal shall be deemed to be a notice of determination of withdrawal of approval on notice under the term of the general medical services contract which gives effect to paragraph 4 of Schedule 7 to the 2004 Regulations (or under the equivalent term of the default contract), subject to the modifications that—

(a)the 30 days referred to in the term of the general medical services contract giving effect to paragraph 4(8) (or in the equivalent term of the default contract) shall be treated as beginning with the day on which the Local Health Board sent the notice under paragraph 18B, and

(b)the date referred to in the term of the general medical services contract giving effect to sub-paragraph 4(9)(a) (or in the equivalent term of the default contract) shall be treated as being the date on which the Local Health Board sent the notice under paragraph 18B.

(4) In a case where, on 31st March 2004, an appeal had already been made under paragraph 18B(6) of Schedule 2 to the 1992 Regulations but not yet been determined or withdrawn, the appeal shall continue to be dealt with as if paragraphs 18A and 18B of that Schedule had not been revoked and, if the appeal is dismissed, the withdrawal of approval shall take effect as a withdrawal of approval under the term of the general medical services contract which gives effect to paragraph 4 of Schedule 7 to the 2004 Regulations (or under the equivalent term of the default contract) on the date on which the general medical services contractor or the default contractor received notice of the dismissal of the appeal.
