The fees that the CQC will charge providers of health and adult social care in England for the year 2019/2020 have been confirmed.

The changes see the CQC complete their move to full cost recovery for all sectors, as required by HM Treasury. This means that their regulatory costs are paid for by provider fees, and no longer subsidised by grant-in-aid funding from the government.

The main changes see increases in fees for the community social care and dental sectors, and a decrease in fees for the residential care sector. The new fees took effect from 1 April, 2019.
