For use from April 2016, for the first time NHS England intends to publish a shorter-form version of the NHS Standard Contract for use in defined circumstances. This will complement the full-length version of the Contract, which will continue to be used in respect of the bulk of services by value. This paper describes the basis on which we have developed the draft shorter-form Contract.
