Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act (Northern Ireland) 2008

Schedule 1: Disqualification by the Tribunal

Schedule 1 makes a number of changes to Schedule 11 to the 1972 Order, which relates to the Tribunal. The Schedule introduces an additional ground under which the Tribunal may deal with a practitioner, namely “unsuitability by reason of professional or personal conduct”. This will add a third condition for disqualification to the two existing disqualification conditions of fraud and prejudice to the efficiency of the relevant service. The Schedule extends the categories of person subject to the Tribunal’s jurisdiction to embrace all practitioners, including those who assist in the provision of services and those wishing to join a Board’s list.
