Monitor and NHS England, working in partnership, need your help to ensure that the future NHS payment system delivers affordable, quality care and better outcomes for patients.
Over the last year we have worked together with a wide range of stakeholders to assess and identify the strengths and limitations of the current payment system and establish a case for change that will do more for patients. You can read about this work in our Evaluation of the reimbursement system for NHS-funded care.
We now need your help to develop a new system that is focused on providing better quality services for patients at a cost that is sustainable.
Our discussion paper, How can the NHS payment system do more for patients?, sets out possible approaches to designing a comprehensive payment system for NHS services for the long term and invites your feedback.
