Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the National Health Service (Travelling Expenses and Remission of Charges) (Scotland) Regulations 1988 (“the 1988 Regulations”), which provide for the remission and repayment of certain charges which would otherwise be payable under the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1978 and for the payment of travelling expenses incurred in attending a hospital. For the purposes of calculating a person’s resources and requirements, the 1988 Regulations apply the Income Support (General) Regulations 1987 (“the 1987 Regulations”) with modifications. The amendments made by these Regulations to the 1988 Regulations provide that, in applying the 1987 Regulations to the calculation of a person’s resources and requirements, the Social Security (Income Support and Claims and Payments) Amendment Regulations 1995 and the Income Support (General) Amendment and Transitional Regulations 1995 (both of which make changes in the way housing costs are calculated for income support purposes) shall be disregarded.
