NHS Providers responds to Care Quality Commission fee structure for trusts

27 March 2019

Responding to the Care Quality Commission fee consultation response, the director of policy and strategy at NHS Providers, Miriam Deakin said:

“We are pleased to see that there are no changes to the fee structure for NHS trusts this year and support CQC’s ambition to charge fees as fairly as possible. However it is worth remembering that CQC fees for some trusts increased substantially last year.

We have encouraged CQC to put a ceiling on fees in the future to prevent them from rising to unsustainably large sums that do not necessarily equate to the cost of regulation.

“We have encouraged CQC to put a ceiling on fees in the future to prevent them from rising to unsustainably large sums that do not necessarily equate to the cost of regulation.

“As the CQC is increasingly taking a targeted, risk-based and digital approach to inspections, trusts rightly expect to see stability in the amount paid year on year, and a reduction in fees over time.”
