Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014

Section 16 – Transfer of staff where functions delegated to a local authority or Health Board

50.Section 16 provides that the Scottish Ministers may make provision by scheme about the transfer or secondment of staff from the body responsible for delegating the functions in the integration scheme as set out in section 1(4)(b), (c) or (d), to the body the functions are delegated to. This provision therefore relates to transfers to local authorities or Health Boards, as opposed to transfers to integration joint boards, which are dealt with by section 12(4).

51.Before making such a scheme under section 16, subsections (2) and (3) require the Scottish Ministers to consult with health professionals, social care professionals and other groups of persons who are prescribed in regulations whom the Scottish Ministers consider to have an interest. Subsection (5) also requires the Scottish Ministers to consult the Health Board and local authority in relation to such a scheme.
