2023/24 NHS Standard Contract

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

Consultation – December 2022

We have now published, for consultation, the draft 2023/24 NHS Standard Contract (both full length and shorter-form versions). The consultation paper describes the main, material changes we are proposing in the Contracts, and we would welcome comments from stakeholders on our proposals. We also welcome comments on the draft Technical Guidance.

Comments on the draft Contract should be submitted by 27 January 2023 via the NHS England consultation hub. Please note that responses can only be submitted via the consultation hub.
