CFW's fight staves off registration fees in Wales

Changes announced by the Care Quality Commission will see health and social providers across the border pay a 10% hike in registration fees – while providers in Wales will have no fees to pay.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England has confirmed changes to its fees for health and social care providers from April 2017 following a public consultation last year. The rise will not apply in Wales – even though the new Regulation and Inspection Act provides the power to impose them – thanks to a long-fought battle by Care Forum Wales on behalf of providers.

The fees providers will pay will depend on the type of care they offer as well as how close their sector is meeting the chargeable cost of their regulation. Read more on the increase in England here.
