2017-19 NHS Standard Contract: updated March 2018

The NHS Standard Contract is mandated by NHS England for use by commissioners for all contracts for healthcare services other than primary care.

Consultation – March 2018

he NHS Standard Contract was updated in January 2018 to update the Contract in line with legislative and policy changes. With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on 25 May 2018, a further National Variation is now required.

We have now published, for consultation, proposals for in-year National Variations to the NHS Standard Contract 2017/18 and 2018/19 (Full Length) and to the NHS Standard Contract 2017/18 and 2018/19 (Shorter Form).

The consultation papers below describe the main, material changes we are proposing in the Contracts, and we would welcome comments from stakeholders on our proposals.

Comments on the National Variations should be sent by 3 April 2018 to england.contractsengagement@nhs.net.
