We have now published, for consultation, the draft 2022/23 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 28 January 2022 via the NHS England Consultation Hub. Please note that responses can only be submitted via the Consultation Hub.
