2019/20 payment reform proposals

We are proposing a number of changes to the payment system in 2019/20 and are looking for feedback on our proposals.

In partnership with NHS Improvement we have published proposals for the 2019/20 national tariff. This includes proposals to update the market forces factor (MFF), which estimates the unavoidable cost differences between healthcare providers, based on their geographical location.

The package of proposals is available on the NHS Improvement website.

NHS Improvement is hosting an online survey for your feedback on the proposals. The deadline for feedback is 29 October.
