Snippets of national changes to NHS regulations

Female Genital Mutilation Legislative Requirements:  From 31st October 2015 healthcare professionals must alert the police if they treat a girl under 18 who has had female genital mutilation.

Proposed Changes to the National Tariff:  The marginal rate for emergency admissions to hospitals, above the level agreed with the local Clinical Commissioning Group, is proposed to change in 2016 from 30% to 70%.  This would hugely benefit acute hospitals such as the Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which currently suffers from having to provide emergency services for which it receives only 30% of the normal tariff.

Revalidation of Registered Nurses and Midwives:  New regulations are to require revalidation at three year intervals.  Evidence of a range of factors will be required, to show that the individual is keeping up to date and getting current practice.  The new requirements come into force in April 2016.
