Consultation: Review of Practitioner Fees
The Medical Radiation Technologists Board (the Board) is proposing an increase to various practitioner fees.
The proposed fees changes will not take effect until the Board’s 2018-2019 financial year which commences on 1st April 2018 (please note, APC renewal fees for 2018-2019 are payable during February to March 2018).
Practitioner fees set by the Board have remained unchanged since 2007 despite a steady increase in operating costs over successive years. The Board has achieved this by funding operating costs from an accumulated operational surplus. However the level of available funds is now at a point where the Board can no longer continue to meet its operational costs and have sufficient available reserves whilst maintaining the same level of income. Subsequently the Board is proposing to increase the various fees for practitioners so it can continue to meet its responsibilities in protecting the health and safety of the New Zealand public.
