(3) An arrangement falling within paragraph (1) shall be known as a health and [F22social care] contract and is referred to in this Order as an “ [F37HSC contract]”.

(4) Whether or not an arrangement which constitutes an [F37HSC contract] would, apart from this paragraph, be a contract in law, it shall not be regarded for any purpose as giving rise to contractual rights or liabilities, but if any dispute arises with respect to such an arrangement, either party may refer the matter to the Department for determination under the following provisions of this Article.

(5) If, in the course of negotiations intending to lead to an arrangement which will be an [F37HSC contract], it appears to either of the prospective parties that—

(8) A determination of a reference under paragraph (4) may contain such directions (including directions as to payment) as the Department or, as the case may be, the person appointed under paragraph (6) considers appropriate to resolve the matter in dispute; and it shall be the duty of the parties to the [F37HSC contract] in question to comply with any such directions.

(9) Without prejudice to the generality of the powers exercisable on a reference under paragraph (4), the Department or, as the case may be, the person appointed under paragraph (6) may in a determination in relation to an arrangement constituting an [F37HSC contract] vary the terms of the arrangement or bring it to an end; and where the arrangement is so varied or brought to an end—

(a) is employed by a relevant body to work solely at, or for the purposes of, a hospital or other establishment or facility which is to become the responsibility of the trust; or

(b) is employed by a relevant body to work at, or for the purposes of, such a hospital, establishment or facility and is designated for the purposes of this Article by a scheme made by the relevant body specified as mentioned in paragraph 3(1)(f) of Schedule 3.

(2) A scheme under this Article shall not have effect unless approved by the Department. (3) Subject to Article 12, the contract of employment between a person to whom this Article

applies and the relevant body by which he is employed shall have effect from the operational date as if originally made between him and the [F58HSC trust].

(4) Without prejudice to paragraph (3)— (a) all the relevant body's rights, powers, duties and liabilities under or in connection with a
