Health: Community-based Services

Volume 704: debated on Wednesday 8 October 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will introduce tariffs for community-based health services. [HL5388]

High Quality Care for All emphasised the need to move away from block contracts for community services. A dozen local National Health Service development sites are testing out alternative contract currencies for community services that could be used nationally, and which may allow the setting of national tariffs in future. Further details will be contained in Currency and Pricing Options for Community Services to be published later this year.
