Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the National Health Service (Dental Charges) (Scotland) Regulations 2003 (“the principal Regulations”) which provide for the making and recovery of charges in respect of the supply of dental appliances under the National Health Service and in respect of the provision of dental treatment under general dental services or in accordance with pilot schemes.

Regulation 2 increases from £378 to £384 the maximum charge in the aggregate which may be payable for all dental appliances supplied and other services provided in pursuance of any one contract or arrangement.

Regulation 3 provides that the increased maximum charge applies only where the contract or arrangement leading to the supply of the appliances and provision of those services is made on or after 1st April 2005. Where the contract or arrangement is made before that date, but the supply or provision is made on or after that date then the previous maximum total charge applies.
