Payment by results national tariff launched

The test version of the Payment By Results (PbR) tariff for 2007/08 has been outlined in a letter from David Nicholson, the NHS Chief Executive.

A key decision for 2007/08 is that the overall tariff uplift for prices and reform is 2.5 per cent, net of 2.5 per cent efficiency.

Mr Nicholson states in his letter that the test phase is not intended to be a process by which the DoH will revisit the tariff or other policy decisions, but is an opportunity for NHS organisations to model of the impact of the increased tariff using local data.

Further information about the tariff can be found on the DoH website.
