The Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England, are funded through a combination of registration fees charged to providers of regulated services and income from government. From 1 April 2013 there are some changes to the fees for providers but as before every registered provider will pay a single annual fee on the same date each year. The good news is that there is no increase for the majority of social care and support services including care homes and domiciliary care.


The CQC have a helpful fees calculator which should allow you to identify, for your setting, what fees are applicable. It can be found on the same webpage as the full details of the new scheme that is applicable from 1 April 2013.

Hi - Looking at the CQC Fees Scheme it would be good to clarify for members the likley area of the fees scheme that generally applies to Shared Lives. It's not that clear!


My reading is that most Shared Lives Schemes would fit under section 9 - for providers of community care services. Am I right in this? If so am I also right that Schemes are the registered body so the reference to number of locations refers to the registered Shared Lives Scheme Office? Therefore; one or a few more in some cases?


A clarification on these things would be really useful.


Many thanks
