Licensing application guidance for NHS-controlled providers

(0)

Guidance for NHS-controlled providers on the process for making an application for an NHS provider licence.

We are introducing a new NHS provider licence for NHS-controlled providers from 1 April 2018. If you are an NHS-controlled provider you must ensure that from 1 April 2018 you are appropriately licensed.

What is an NHS-controlled provider?

NHS-controlled providers are providers who are:

  1. Not NHS trusts or NHS foundation trusts
  2. Required to hold a provider licence
  3. Ultimately controlled by one or more NHS trusts and/or foundation trusts, where ‘control’ is defined on the basis of IFRS 10

See our oversight of NHS-controlled providers consultation for more information.

NHS-controlled providers must ensure that they are appropriately licensed from 1 April 2018.

Existing licence holders

If you currently hold an NHS provider licence as an independent provider and meet the definition of an NHS-controlled provider,  you need to:

  1. Make a request for your independent provider licence to be withdrawn. From 1 April 2018, your independent provider licence will no longer apply
  2. Apply for an NHS controlled provider licence

If you do not currently hold a licence

If you do not currently hold an NHS provider licence but meet the definition of an NHS-controlled provider, you need to apply for an NHS-controlled provider licence.
