Local variations template simplified

Commissioners should submit details of agreed national tariff variations to NHS Improvement.

As part the 2019/20 national tariff, which came into effect on 1 April, the local variations template has been simplified to focus on the key information needed to understand how providers and commissioners are working together and guide future price development. Submitted variations will be made available for all stakeholders to review and learn from. The updated template, and related guidance, is available on NHS Improvement’s website. Any queries should be directed to pricing@improvement.nhs.uk. Commissioners are asked to submit details of agreed variations by 30 June 2019.
