Claim for treating adults with incapacity

Published on 16 July 2021

We assist with payment fees to GP practices for the treatment of adults with incapacity under Paragraph 15 of the Statement of Financial Entitlements (SFE).

Completion of assessment and certificate under Section 47 of Part 5 of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 for authorising treatment under the NHS by an independent health professional is required.

Where no valid certificate exists in respect of treatment by the GP, this will qualify for a fee at the rate set out in Paragraph 15 of the SFE.

The claim form is being updated - please contact your regional office for a copy in the meantime.
