A new paragraph (c) has been added to subsection (1) of the new section 75A of the National Health Service (Scotland) Act, inserted by clause 13(2). This will enable existing arrangements for the payment of overnight expenses to continue. Those arrangements are needed because of the long journeys which people in some parts of Scotland have to undertake to get treatment.
