NHS postponed publication of national tariff 2020/21 until July 31

On 22 January 2020, the consultation on proposals for a national tariff for 2020/21 closed. However, the release of the 2020/21 tariff has been postponed due to the NHS response to COVID-19. On 17 March 2020, it was announced that block contracts will be used to cover the period April 1 – July 31, as the national tariff is suspended. More details about that can be found here.

The National Tariff Payment System sets out the national tariff for each year. This set of prices and rules helps local Clinical Commissioning Groups work with Health Care Providers, such as NHS Trusts and NHS Foundation Trusts to identify which health care services provide the best value to their patients.

The National Tariff Payment System is managed by NHS England and NHS Improvement.
