Smoking, Health and Social Care (Scotland) Act 2005

Section 22 – Drug Tariff

103.This section inserts a new section 17W into the 1978 Act.

104.New section 17W provides that Scottish Ministers must prepare, maintain and publish a document to be referred to as the Drug Tariff, and provides for what it must or may contain. As stated above (paragraph 74), the Drug Tariff already exists for the purposes of pharmaceutical services. However, its requirement in primary legislation terms is only implicit and for limited purposes. This new provision makes clear the status and purposes for which the Drug Tariff must or may be used.
