EQUALITY IN HEALTHCARE REGULATORY REGISTRATION FEES

Back to all Motions

Conference
2010 Health Care Service Group Conference
Date
30 November 2009
Decision
Carried

This conference is concerned at the different and varied rates charged to registrants by health professional regulatory bodies for essentially the same service.

Further, conference notes that none of these bodies have a system of pro-rata registration fees for part-time health workers nor a system based on affordability to pay.

As health regulation spreads across all the Agenda for Change pay bands the detrimental impact on our members of having to pay registration fees increases and this is especially the case with those groups of staff currently covered by the PTB sector committee.

Conference therefore calls on the Health Service Group Executive to campaign to:

·Equalise registration fee rates across all health regulatory bodies;

·Introduce a system of pro-rata health regulatory fees based on income.
