Prescribed Specialised Services 2019/20 planning tool
The National Casemix Office have launched the Prescribed Specialised Services 2019/20 planning tool. The tool implements the NHS England Identification Rules that are to be used to support the planning rounds for 2019/20.
They have also published a 2018/19 operational tool. This contains the same identification rules as the Prescribed Specialised Services 2017/18 operational tool, but it has been updated for the additional user functionality present in the Prescribed Specialised Services 2019/20 planning tool.
Proposals for the next tariff
In October, in partnership with NHS England, we published details of some of the principal proposed changes to the payment system in 2019/20. In addition, NHS Digital have published a 2019/20 engagement grouper.
We held the following webinars to set out and discuss proposals in more detail:
- Potential changes to the maternity payment pathway - click here to view a recording
- A 'blended' payment approach for emergency care - click here to view a recording
- Market forces factor proposals for the 2019 national tariff - click here to view a recording.
We will use the feedback received to finalise proposals for the statutory consultation on the next tariff, due in January 2019.
In December 2018 we will publish a set of prices to support planning.
