These Regulations amend the Road Traffic (Health Services Charges) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2001 (“the principal Regulations”) which provide for a scheme for the recovery from insurers and certain other persons of charges in connection with the health services treatment of road traffic casualties.
Amendments made to the principal Regulations by regulation 2 increase the charges. Where a traffic casualty receives health services treatment but is not admitted to hospital in respect of an incident which occurs on or after 1st April 2006 the charge is increased from £483 to £505. The daily charge for health services in-patient treatment in respect of an incident which occurs on or after 1st April 2006 is increased from £593 to £620. The maximum charge for in-patient treatment in respect of an incident which occurs on or after 1st April 2006 is increased from £35,500 to £37,100.
Regulation 3 is a saving provision which maintains the current charges for incidents occurring before 1st April 2006.
