PVG scheme for members of boards of health bodies: consultation

Consultation on proposals to make it a requirement for members of Boards of Health Bodies to be members of the PVG Scheme.

Annex C

Cost Implications

6. PVG Scheme costs are £59 for new registrants and £18 for Scheme Updates. They can be met by the individual or employer. Executive members of Health Boards are also employees of the Board and may already be members of the PVG Scheme. Therefore, the initial cost of implementing this policy has been worked out on basis of requiring all existing non-executives to be entered onto the PVG Scheme.

NHS Ayrshire & Arran £767

7. Most Health Bodies undertake an appointment round each year to replace between 1 and 4 members. Therefore ongoing costs are likely to be between £59 - £236 per annum.
