Review of the fees charged and frequency of inspections by RQIA 01/11/2016

The Department of Health has launched a consultation on the fees RQIA will charge regulated providers in Northern Ireland from April 2017. At present there is variation between the fees charged different types of service, with domiciliary care rates currently nil. RQIA plans to introduce fees for domiciliary care agencies from 1 April 2017 as follows: Registration fee: Provider £952, Manager £261; Annual fee: £215; and Variation fee: £100, £25 minor variation. A similar approach is planned for other services that do not pay fees currently. The consultation also includes proposed new minimum frequencies for inspections. The proposed statutory minimum number of inspections for a domiciliary care provider is one per year, the same as presently.

The consultation closes on 30 December 2016. UKHCA will be preparing a response on behalf of members, so please email your views to by 2 December 2016. Letter to consultees Consultation paper Respond to consultation
