Section 11 – Other staff of integration joint board

33.This section provides for the Scottish Ministers, by order, to give integration joint boards the ability to employ staff other than a chief officer and to make further provision in relation to the staffing of integration joint boards as the Scottish Ministers think fit, including: (a) the appointment of staff; (b) the numbers of staff; and (c) the terms and conditions of staff.

34.Subsection (3)(a) provides for flexibility in the use of the power in subsection (1), so an order under section 11 can be made which can apply only to a single, or some, integration joint boards as well as to all integration joint boards. Subsection (3)(b) provides for further flexibility for the Scottish Ministers to make different provision in relation to different integration joint boards.

35.Subsection (4) places a requirement on the Scottish Ministers to consult with Health Boards, local authorities and integration joint boards before exercising the power to make an order under subsection (1).
