Explanatory Notes

Disclosure: Wales

63 The regulations governing social care service providers and independent health care providers in Wales include requirements relating to vetting procedures for staff before they are permitted to start work. This provision will allow Welsh Ministers to issue a notice disapplying or varying the requirements to provide increased flexibility for providers to enable them to take steps to address workforce issues in a more agile way.

64 Notices issued in this way must contain a statement by the Welsh Ministers, explaining why the step is appropriate and proportionate. Notices will have effect for one month though Welsh Ministers may issue further notices as well as cancelling them.
