Key areas of work for the 2020 national tariff

Closed 18 Nov 2019

Opened 1 Nov 2019


This survey accompanies the document Key areas of work for the 2020 national tariff. The document reflects updates to policies that were presented in the tariff engagement workshops and webinars in August and September 2019.

If you provided feedback following the workshops or webinars, please feel free to refer to your previous submission in your responses.

The areas that have changed significantly since the earlier engagement are:

  • Blended payment for maternity services and outpatient attendances: Potential models include outcomes and risk share elements, rather than activity-based variable elements.
  • Blended payment for adult critical care: No longer considering mandating the change to blended payment for 2020; rather, looking to pilot a potential approach during 2020 and then consider proposing mandating changes for 2021.

You can download the document and a Word version of the survey below to help you develop your response. Please submit all final responses through the online survey.

The deadline for responses is the end of 18 November 2019.
