Insert the following new Clause—

“Exemption of charging for primary medical services where charging is not cost-
effective or poses a risk to public health

(1)     Section 182 of the National Health Service Act 2006 (remission and
payment of charges) is amended as follows.

(2)     After subsection (1), insert—

“(2)     Insofar as any regulations under section 175 provide for charges to
be made for the provision of primary medical services, they shall
include provision for the remission in full of any charge that falls
below the minimum threshold of service cost.

(3)     In subsection (2), the “minimum threshold of service cost” shall be
the cost to the provider of primary medical services below which no
charge is to be made for the provision of those services.

(4)     Where regulations under section 175 provide for a charge to be
made for the provision of primary medical services, the provider of
those services may waive the charge where he or she considers that
the cost of recovering the charge is not economical or where the
consequences of charging may put the public health at risk.””
