NHS Charges: Increase for accidents from 1 April 2019

Published 7 marzo 2019

The amount compensators are required to pay to the Compensation Recovery Unit in relation to treatment provided by the NHS to injured Claimants has been increased for injuries suffered on or after 1 April 2019, as follows:

  Accidents / Injuries up to 31/03/2019 Accidents / Injuries from 01/04/2019

Out-patient
treatment

£688 £725

In-patient treatment
(per day)

£846 £891

Ambulance journey
(per journey)

£208 £219

The cap on total recoverable NHS Charges will increase from £50,561 to £53,278.

Although each individual increase is not significant, insurers will need to ensure that their reserves for accidents which occur on or after 1 April 2019 reflect the increased level of charges.
