The 2008 Act falls into five main parts, whose main objectives were: to establish the Care Quality Commission; to change arrangements for regulation of health professionals and of the health and social care workforce; to update the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984; to create the Health in Pregnancy Grant; and to make miscellaneous other changes in relation to health and social care. Most of the provisions of the Act are now in force (in some cases with amendments made by later legislation). The main exceptions include part 2 sections 124-126, which dealt with various matters in the remit of the General Social Care Council, and were not commenced. Instead, the Council was abolished, and its functions were transferred to the Health and Care Professions Council, in 2012. Part 3 provisions relating to port health have not yet been commenced, but the intention is that they will come into force at the same time as new port health regulations. The Act achieved its objectives (or in the case of port health, is in the process of doing so), with the exception of the creation of the Office of the Health Professions Adjudicator. The rest of the memorandum considers each Part of the Act in more detail, with information about: secondary legislation made under the powers created by the Act, and key guidance issued in relation to it; any legal issues that have arisen in relation to the Act, and other reviews of the Act, that the Department of Health is aware of
