NHS Improvement and NHS England have today published the statutory consultation for the 2017/18 to 2018/19 national tariff.
Due to the requirement to publish proposals as soon as possible the impact assessment report has yet to be finalised. It is currently being completed and will be published in around a week’s time. As the impact assessment is an important part of the consultation the 28 day period will only start when it is published. Therefore, the consultation period will run from 31st October until midnight on 6 December.
A survey to gain feedback on the tariff proposals has been published. If you are a commissioner or provider delivering nationally priced services you will be able to accept or reject the method used to set the tariff.
