EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)


These Regulations amend the National Health Service (General Medical Services Contracts) Regulations 2004, the National Health Service (Personal Medical Services Agreements) Regulations 2004 and the National Health Service (Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 1992.

The Schedules amended by regulations 2, 3 and 4(b) contain lists of Primary Care Trusts which are specified for the purposes of repeatable prescribing or repeat dispensing. These lists wrongly included a reference to "Leicester Primary Care Trust" which does not exist. These Regulations substitute a correct reference to "Leicester City West Primary Care Trust" which is one of two Primary Care Trusts in Leicester.

Regulation 4(a) amends regulation 2(1) of the Pharmaceutical Services Regulations, correcting the definition of "supplementary prescriber".
