Section 14 - Payments by local authorities towards expenditure by NHS bodies on prescribed functions

56.Section 14 provides a reciprocal power to section 13. It allows for a local authority to make payments to an NHS body towards certain of the NHS body’s functions. The payments must be in accordance with any conditions prescribed in regulations by the Scottish Ministers, such as requirements on accounting and auditing or requirements for associated outcome agreements. Payments can be made only if, in the opinion of the local authority, they would improve the way in which the local authority’s functions are exercised. The NHS body functions towards which payment can be made are those functions which may be prescribed in regulations by the Scottish Ministers. Payments can be towards capital or revenue expenditure. “NHS body” and “local authority” are defined in section 22.
