NHS Service Level Changes

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 25 January 2007

Any changes, or proposed changes, to services are a matter for the national health service locally. We would expect a whole range of factors to be taken into consideration in such circumstances.

Hospitals are paid for payment by results activity at national tariff. Funding for services outside the scope of payment by results continues to be agreed locally with commissioners.
