(c)that person has been dismissed, otherwise than by reason of redundancy, from any paid employment with a health service body; or

(d)that person is a person whose tenure of office as the chair, member or director or governor of a health service body has been terminated because his or her appointment is not in the interests of the health service or the health service body in question, for non-attendance at meetings or for non-disclosure of a pecuniary interest; or

(3) For the purposes of paragraph (1)(c) a person will not be treated as having been in paid employment by reason only of his or her being chair, member or director or, in the case of an NHS foundation trust his or her being chair, governor, or non-executive director of, the health service body in question.

(4) A person will not be disqualified by paragraph (1)(e) from being the chair or a non-executive director of the Trust during the period between the date on which it is established and its operational date by virtue of being the chair or a non-executive director of another NHS trust.
