This may sound silly, but i cannot remember now..but at what limit on time is there for overnight care?

When Ofsted came out, I didn't bother to reg for overnights but now have had an enquiry from hospital worker. She needs care up until 12 midnight on some occasions. Would this be ok, or am I not allowed to do this unless I reg for overnights?

You don't really need overnight registration to work until midnight. Overnight registration is designed to cover you for when you are asleep and still caring for a child overnight until the next day.
