behalf of the CFSMS, to review the arrangements put in place by the Contractor pursuant to Clause 10.27.


The Contractor shall promptly upon becoming aware of any suspected fraud or corruption involving the Patients or public funds, report such matter to the PCT.


The provisions of Clauses 10.26 and 10.29 shall continue following termination of the Contract for any reason whatsoever and without limit in time.



If the Contractor is to provide Essential Services under the Contract, the Contractor shall issue free of charge to a Patient or his personal  representative any medical certificate of a description prescribed in column 1 of the table below which is reasonably required under or for the purposes of the enactments specified in relation to the certificate in column 2 of the table below, except where, for the condition to which the certificate relates, the Patient:


is being attended by a medical practitioner who is not employed or engaged by the Contractor,


is not being treated by or under the supervision of a Health Care Professional.

43 Clause 10.31 and 10.32 (and the related table) are required by APMS Direction 6.    In practice, however, they are unlikely to be relevant to a contract with an out of hours provider, because they only applies where the Contractor provides Essential Services and so has a list of registered patients.
