EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Personal Injuries (NHS Charges) (Amounts) Regulations 2015 (“the principal Regulations”) which make provision about the charges payable under the scheme for the recovery of NHS charges in cases where an injured person who receives a compensation payment in respect of their injury has received NHS hospital treatment or ambulance services.

Regulation 2 amends the principal Regulations by inserting a substitute table in Schedule 1. This table provides for increased charges in respect of injuries which occur on or after 1st April 2018. Where the injured person is provided with NHS ambulance services, the charge will be £208 (compared with £205 which is the charge in respect of injuries occurring on or after 1st April 2017 but no later than 31st March 2018). Where the injured person receives NHS treatment, but is not admitted to hospital, the charge will be £688 (compared with £678 for injuries incurred the previous year). The daily charge for NHS in-patient treatment will be £846 (compared with £833 for injuries incurred the previous year). The maximum charge in respect of an injury will be £50,561 (compared with £49,824 for injuries incurred the previous year).

Regulation 3 revokes the Personal Injuries (NHS Charges) (Amounts) Amendment Regulations 2016 and the Personal Injuries (NHS Charges) (Amounts) Amendment Regulations 2017 as they are no longer of any continuing effect.

A full impact assessment has not been prepared for these Regulations as a negligible impact on business, charities or voluntary bodies is foreseen.
