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.
