Offer An offer is a promise that is, by its terms, conditional upon an act, forbearance, or return promise being given in exchange for the promise or its performance. It is a demonstration of willingness to enter into a bargain, made so that another party is justified in understanding that his or her assent to the bargain is invited and will conclude it. Any offer must consist of a statement of present intent to enter a contract; a definite proposal that is certain in its terms; and communication of the offer to the identified, prospective offeree. If any of these elements are missing, there is no offer to form the basis of a contract.
In Canada, the Canadian Bill of Rights, properly so called, was enacted in 1960. It was, and is, a code of conduct to be followed in the creation of federal legislation - it is similar to the US Bill of Rights and protects traditional freedoms. Subsequently there was enacted the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which is entrenched in the constitution in Part I of the Constitution Act 1982 (Canada). The Bill of Rights remains law, and there are matters in the Bill that are not in the Charter, and vice versa. The Charter is founded on a categorization of civil liberties into ‘egalitarian liberties’, relating to equality under law; ‘legal liberties’, covering protection under the criminal code; and ‘political liberties’, like freedom of speech, assembly, etc. New categories of rights were included: ‘mobility rights’ and ‘linguistic rights’, which protect people's right to use their language if it is French or English. The Charter goes further and provides for education in the first language learned and understood; it provides aboriginal rights. See also HUMAN RIGHTS .
Dr Anna Collings, Partner at Pewsey Surgery said: "The workforce challenges within the NHS, and most particularly the shortage of GPs and other primary care staff, have been widely reported nationally and locally and are now beginning to affect our own north east corner of Wiltshire. It is really important for us to continue our patient relationships and to keep improving the quality and range of our services. But the challenges are real and we need to take action now to make sure we can respond to the developing healthcare landscape. Merging with Marlborough Medical Practice is a sensible and positive way forward”.
