Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the National Health Service (Pilot Schemes—Health Service Bodies) Regulations 1997 by extending those Regulations to pilot schemes under which personal dental services are, or are to be, provided. Those Regulations (as thus amended) specify the procedure for applications made under section 16 of the National Health Service (Primary Care) Act 1997, by which any person or persons who are providing, or who are proposing to provide, personal dental services can become a health service body for the purposes of section 4 of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 and section 17A of the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1978. They also state the circumstances in which a health service body arising from an application is to cease to be such a body.
These Regulations impose no costs on business.
