Care Bill — New Clause 16 — Detemination of Services to Continue at NHS Trusts under Administration — 11 Mar 2014 at 17:45

The majority of MPs voted against allowing those who commission services at a NHS trust which goes into administration, and commissioners at affected trusts, to determine which services must continue to be provided.

This relates to the measures which come into effect when a trust is deemed unable, or likely to become unable, to pay its debts.

MPs were considering the Care Bill[1] when they rejected a proposed new clause. The rejected new clause[2] would have required wider consultation of trusts affected by decisions made by administrators of failed NHS trusts, and would have restricted the scope of the Secretary of State's consideration of the administrator's report and regulator's decision. The rejected new clause would also have introduced additional requirements for public consultation where there are changes proposed to services provided by an affected trust.

The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was accompanied by an explanatory statement saying it:

  • ensures that all commissioners of services affected by a trust special administrator’s report have the right to define local specified services;
  • clarifies that, save for the trust in administration, local commissioners remain the decision makers for services they commission; and
  • restores public engagement for changes other than for a trust in administration.
