Fair and transparent pricing for NHS services - A consultation on proposals for objecting to proposed pricing methodologies

Closed 21 Dec 2012

Opened 5 Oct 2012


This consultation discusses the new arrangements for the National Tariff (covering the prices to be paid for NHS services) provided for in the Health and Social Care Act 2012.  It includes consultation questions relating to the circumstances in which objections from providers and/or commissioners to the pricing methodology proposed by Monitor would require either re-consideration by Monitor of the proposal or a referral to the Competition Commission.  The consultation is one of a number DH is carrying out in relation to the new arrangements for regulating healthcare services. It should be considered alongside current consultations on; a new licensing regime for NHS providers  and procurement regulations for NHS commissioners.
