2016 No. 100 (W. 48)

NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE, WALES

The Public Health Wales National Health Service Trust (Membership and Procedure) (Amendment) Regulations 2016

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Public Health Wales National Health Service Trust (Membership and Procedure) Regulations 2009 (S.I. 2009/1385 (W. 141)) by removing the requirement for the local authority non-executive director and the university non-executive director to be nominated. These Regulations also remove the requirement for the voluntary sector non-executive director to hold a post in Wales. The university non-executive director will no longer have to be nominated by a university in Wales, or have teaching or research specialism in public health; instead all that will be required is for the person to hold a health-related post in a university.

The Welsh Ministers’ Code of Practice on the carrying out of Regulatory Impact Assessments was considered in relation to these Regulations. As a result, it was not considered necessary to carry out a regulatory impact assessment as to the likely costs and benefits of complying with these Regulations.
