NHS Charges-Increase for accidents from 1 April 2018

Published 16 abril 2018

The amount compensators are required to pay to the Compensation Recovery Unit in relation to treatment provided to injured Claimants has been increased for injuries suffered on or after 1 April 2018.

  Accidents/Injuries up to 31/03/2018   Accidents/Injuries from 01/04/2018
 Out-patient treatment £678 £688 
 In-patient treatment (per day) £833 £846
 Ambulance journey (per journey)  £205 £208

The cap on total recoverable NHS Charges will increase from £49,824 to £50,561.

Although each individual increase is not significant, insurers will need to ensure that their reserves for accidents which occur on or after 1 April 2018 reflect the increased level of charges.
