Reforming the payment system for NHS services: supporting the NHS Five Year Forward View

NHS England and Monitor have published a document setting out how we plan to reform of the NHS payment system in support of the NHS Five Year Forward View.

The NHS Five Year Forward View, published in October 2014, acknowledged that new care models will take time to develop, and so will the supporting payment system. NHS England and Monitor have been working on changes to the payment system for some time, and are already developing payment approaches suitable for some of the new care models.

This document signals the proposed direction of payment system reform, setting out the new payment approaches and improvements to the underlying data and processes that are envisaged, and when and how these can be introduced.
