Monitor and NHS England are re-designing the NHS Payment System so that it can do more to benefit patients, promote integrated care and eliminate perverse incentives.
“The way that hospitals and other healthcare providers are paid for the care they provide is known as the NHS payment system. It has an impact on how care is purchased on our behalf and how services are provided. The payment system should encourage the provision of good quality services”.
Section headings include:
- How does the NHS payment system work now?
- Why redesign the payment system?
- How will the new payment system be better for patients?
- Will you see any difference?
