(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends the Order which established the Carlisle Hospitals National Health Service Trust to alter the purpose for which the trust has been established, and to amend its functions. (The trust has, in exercise of its existing functions, assumed responsibility for the ownership and management of hospital accommodation and services provided at Cumberland Infirmary, Newtown Road, Carlisle, Cumbria CA2 7HY. These services and accommodation were previously managed by the former East Cumbria Health Authority.)
This Order confers on the trust the purpose specified in section 5(1)(b) of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990, to provide and manage hospitals or other establishments or facilities. It also alters the trust’s functions to enable it to provide hospital and community health services from premises not previously provided or managed by a Health Authority or a Special Health Authority, and so that the trust is no longer required to own the premises from which it is to provide such services.
1977 c. 49; section 126(3) was amended by section 65(2) of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 (c. 19) (“the 1990 Act”).
