Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014

Section 64 – Common Services Agency for the Scottish Health Service: residual liabilities

156.Section 64 amends section 2(1) of the National Health Service (Residual Liabilities) Act 1996 to ensure that those bodies entering into contracts with the Common Services Agency are offered the same protection which is provided when contracting with other NHS bodies. This change is made to take account of the fact that the Common Services Agency may, since the enactment of section 14 of the Public Services Reform (Scotland) Act 2010, be dissolved by order under that Act. In the event that such an order is made, any residual liabilities of the Common Services Agency will transfer to the Scottish Ministers or another health body.
