Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act (Northern Ireland) 2016

Charges for services provided to persons not ordinarily resident in Northern Ireland

12.The 1972 Order authorises the Department to make available any services provided under the Order to persons not ordinarily resident in Northern Ireland. The Department may determine charges for such services and also prescribe exemptions from these charges. The 2008 Act, in rewording this provision, removed the phrase “subject to such exemptions as may be prescribed” from the 1972 Order. To avoid any ambiguity and for clarity, the Department wishes to make the minor amendment of restoring these words. These amendments are set out in section 14 in the Act.
