(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends the establishment order of the Medway Primary Care Trust (“the trust”). The trust is a Primary Care Trust established under section 16A of the National Health Service Act 1977. This Order substitutes a new Schedule for the Schedule to the establishment order, to reduce the area of the trust so that it covers the county of Medway. The areas which are no longer covered by the trust are to be covered by the West Kent Primary Care Trust and the Eastern and Coastal Kent Primary Care Trust, which are to be established on 1st October 2006 by SI 2006/2072.
A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this Order as it has no impact on the costs of business, charities or voluntary bodies.
