Regulatory fees for 2018/19 – consultation

27 October 2017

CQC's proposals consider how they should calculate the fees that providers of health and adult social care must pay in order to be registered.

CQC must fulfil the government’s commitment to reduce grant-in-aid funding to public regulatory bodies and have now reached ‘full chargeable cost recovery’ for most providers they regulate. The exception is providers of community adult social care. For this sector, they set out proposals for the third year (of four) towards ‘full cost recovery’, as agreed following our previous consultation.

What is this consultation asking people to comment on?
CQC are seeking views on how they propose to review the structure of their fees scheme to ensure that fees are charged and distributed proportionately within each sector. Their proposals are based on what they have learnt and on changes to the health and care sectors and focus on these providers:
  • Community social care
  • NHS GPs
  • Urgent care
  • NHS trusts

How to give your views
CQC describe these proposals in more detail in their consultation document.
