Health, Social Care and Sport Committee

Meeting date: Tuesday, September 20, 2022


Subordinate Legislation

General Pharmaceutical Council (Amendment) Rules Order of Council 2022 (SI 2022/697)

The Convener

The final item is consideration of a negative instrument. The Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee considered the instrument at its meeting on 6 September and made no recommendation.

The instrument’s purpose is to allow the appeals and fitness to practise committees of the General Pharmaceutical Council to hold meetings or hearings using audio or videoconferencing facilities on a permanent basis. In-person hearings and meetings will continue to be available.

No motion to annul has been received in relation to the instrument. If members have no comments, do we agree that the committee will make no recommendation in relation to the instrument?

Members indicated agreement.

The Convener

At the committee’s next meeting, we will take evidence on winter planning for the NHS and social care. That concludes the public part of today’s meeting.
