Updated guidance to the NHS has now been published on the third phase of the NHS response to COVID-19. The operation of CQUIN (both CCG and specialised) will remain suspended for all providers until 31 March 2021; providers do not need to implement CQUIN requirements, carry out CQUIN audits nor submit CQUIN performance data. For Trusts, an allowance for CQUIN will continue to be built into nationally-set block payments; for non-NHS providers, commissioners should continue to make CQUIN payments at the full applicable rate.
