Section 47 – New integration scheme

130.Section 47 applies where a local authority and Health Board decide under section 44 or 45 that changes to an integration scheme are necessary or desirable. Section 47 sets out that a local authority and Health Board must prepare a new integration scheme under section 1 where they wish to change either the number or identity of the local authorities which prepared the scheme, or the integration model used. The new scheme is subject to all the same requirements, including consultation and the requirement for Ministerial approval, as the original integration scheme. Subsection (4) clarifies that the Act applies to a new integration scheme created under section 47 as it applies to a scheme prepared under section 1 or section 2(2).
