[F16671A Fees for certificates relating to notifiable diseases and food poisoning.E+W+S

[F167(1)Subject to any exceptions which he may specify, the Secretary of State may direct that a Health Board shall pay to a medical practitioner a fee of such amount as the direction may specify for each certificate duly sent by him under—

(a)section 3(1) of the Infectious Diseases (Notification) Act 1889 (notification of infectious diseases);

(b)regulations made under section 1 of the Public Health (Scotland) Act 1945 (power to make regulation with a view to preventing the spread of certain diseases);

(c)section 22(1) of the Food and Drugs (Scotland) Act 1956 (notification of cases of food poisoning).

(2)The Secretary of State may direct that different fees shall be paid under this section in relation to different circumstances.

(3)A direction under this section may make provision in relation to fees payable after a date specified in the direction.

(4)The date may be before or after the date of the direction but may not be before if it would be to the detriment of medical practitioners.

(5)Before giving a direction as to a fee under this section the Secretary of State shall consult any body accepted by him as a proper body for negotiating fees for medical practitioners.

(6)For the avoidance of doubt it is hereby declared that the fact that a medical practitioner who gives any such certificate as is referred to in subsection (1) above holds the office to whose holder the certificate is required to be sent does not disentitle him to payment of the fee (if any) payable for the certificate.

(7)This section applies to Scotland only.]]
