Key areas of work for the 2020 national tariff

NHS England and the NHS Improvement pricing team  (Monday 4 November)have  published the tariff engagement document Key areas of work for the 2020 national tariff.


This document is the latest part of the engagement work we have been undertaking since the summer on the 2020 national tariff and sets out some of the most notable policy areas we are currently considering, with a particular focus on blended payments.


The document also reflects updates to policies that were presented in the tariff engagement workshops and webinars in August and September 2019, primarily changes to the blended payment approaches for maternity and outpatients and moving to pilot an approach for adult critical care, rather than proposing to mandate it.
