CQC hike in fees for providers

Social care providers set to face sharp hike in CQC fees – Social care providers face steep hikes in the fees they pay to the Care Quality Commission as the government demands the regulator recovers the full costs of regulating services. Under proposals published for consultation today, 100% of the CQC’s annual regulation costs would be met through provider fees. Government currently funds 50% of the regulation budget, which is £224m this year.
