Share your views on the fees that registered health and social care services should pay

28 September 2012

We have launched a consultation on the fees that we propose to charge health and social care services that are registered with us.

The changes for the fees in 2013/14 include:

  • redefining fees categories.
  • the fees that NHS GP providers and other primary medical services will pay when they are registered from 1 April 2013.
  • a change to the banding of fees for primary dental services.
  • an increase in fees for single specialty independent hospitals.
  • a decrease in the fees for individual mobile diagnostic providers.
  • a change to the category and fee levels for out-of-hours providers.
  • extending the scheme from 1 October 2013 to include independent midwives who will be entering the registration system.
