Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014

Section 19 – Payments to local authorities in respect of delegated functions

54.Subsection (2) requires that, where a Health Board delegates a function to a local authority, the Health Board is under a duty to set aside an amount for use by the local authority which has been determined according to the method set out in the integration scheme in respect of services provided in a hospital in the area of a Health Board which serves the area of two or more local authorities (such hospitals are referred to in these Notes as “large hospitals”). Subsection (3) provides that where no delegated functions relate to services delivered in large hospitals, or where the Health Board chooses to make payments to the local authority in respect of such functions, the Health Board must make payments of amounts to the local authority for all of the delegated functions, including those which relate to services delivered in large hospitals in accordance with the method set out in the integration scheme.

55.Subsection (4) requires that, in arrangements in which a local authority is the integration authority and where more than one local authority is covered by the same integration scheme, each delegating local authority is under a duty to make a payment to the local authority which is the lead authority for each delegated function.
