NHS charges apply to all personal injury claims occurring after 29 January 2007. The tariff and ceiling on charges will be increasing on 1 April 2010. The increases will apply only to injuries sustained on or after that date. All charges will be increased by 3.5% in line with Hospital and Community Health Service inflation, making the maximum recoverable amount £42,999.
