This Shorter-Form Sub-Contract has now been revised in line the January 2018 edition of the NHS Standard Contract and has been republished as this version 3. The changes made to the Shorter-Form Sub-Contract are not considered material, and there is no expectation that providers must use it to update their existing sub-contracts, unless they wish to do so. The Standard Sub-Contract remains a non-mandatory model, but, where providers choose to use it when entering into new sub-contracts commencing 1 February 2018 onwards, they should use this version 3; commissioners are commissioning services using the January edition of the NHS Standard Contract, and this version 3 of the Shorter-Form Sub-Contract ensures that these provisions ‘flow down’ to sub-contract level.
