Implementing a two-year tariff
The 2017/19 National Tariff Payment System will come into effect from 1 April 2017.
By running for two years the national tariff aims to give providers and commissioners of NHS-funded services time to restore financial balance and support all organisations to develop and deliver ambitious longer term plans for their local health economies.
