Charges for more expensive supplies and repairs

8.—(1) Where the Scottish Ministers or a NHS trust –

(a)supply a dental appliance which is, at the request of the person supplied, of a type more expensive than the basic type; or

(b)repair such a dental appliance at a cost exceeding that of repairing a dental appliance of the basic type,

they or, as the case may be, the NHS trust may make and recover from the patient a charge equal to the difference between the cost of supplying or repairing the appliance and the cost of supplying or repairing an appliance of the basic type, in addition to any charge under regulation 2(1).
