CQC consults on fees

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has launched a consultation on the changes it proposes to make to the fees that providers of health and social care services should pay in 2012/13.

These fees will be used to cover the work of registering and monitoring providers’ compliance with government standards of quality and safety.

The consultation sets out to:

  • extend the scheme to include providers of primary care out-of-hours services entering the registration system from 1 April 2012.
  • reduce the fees in the middle bandings for providers of dental and independent ambulance services.
  • reduce the fee in the lowest level banding for providers of adult social care services without accommodation.
