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.

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.
