Following a 9% increase for 2015/16, care homes will have to pay considerably more in registration fees from April.

The Care Quality Commission announced the increase in late March, following a public consultation last year and approval from the Secretary of State for Health. In the announcement, CQC gave the example a care home with 21 to 25 beds, which would have to pay an increase of £238.

The regulator said it would publish a calculator on its website in April to help providers work out their exact fees for 2015/16, alongside detailed fees guidance.

In the summer, CQC will introduce the option for providers to pay by instalments and by direct debit, to help them manage their cash flows.
