HEALTH & SOCIAL CARE
Community Care (Personal Care and Nursing Care) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/83)
These Regulations are made under the Community Care and Health (Scotland) Act 2002, which, together with the Community Care (Personal Care and Nursing Care) (Scotland) Regulations 2002, provides that local authorities are not to charge for certain types of social care provided or secured by them. Reg.2 of the 2002 Regulations modifies, for the purpose of charging, the meaning of accommodation provided under the Social Work (Scotland) Act 1968 or the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003 s.25. These Regulations amend reg.2 of the 2002 Regulations to increase the thresholds below which certain care is not to be charged for (reg.2). In respect of personal care, personal support and care of a kind mentioned in Sch.1 of the 2002 Act, the first £180 is not to be charged for (up from £177). For these purposes, “personal care” and “personal support” have the same meaning as in the Public Services Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 Sch.12 para.20. In respect of nursing care, the first £81 is not to be charged for (up from £80).

Human Tissue (Authorisation) (Specified Type A Procedures) (Scotland) Regulations 2020 (SSI 2020/80)
These Regulations specify medical procedures which may be carried out on a person for the purpose of increasing the likelihood of successful transplantation of a part of the person’s body after the person’s death and which are not for the primary purpose of safeguarding or promoting the physical or mental health of the person, known under the Human Tissue (Scotland) Act 2006 as “pre-death procedures “ (see s.16A, inserted by the Human Tissue (Authorisation) (Scotland) Act 2019 s.23). These Regulations specify the “Type A procedures”. Type A procedures are those pre-death procedures which Ministers consider are appropriate to be carried out in accordance with s.16E of the Act without the need for further conditions or restrictions on their performance, such as only in specified circumstances or following further authorisation. A pre-death procedure may only be carried out on a person if it has been specified as either a Type A procedure or Type B procedure (see s.16D of the Act).
