Review of incentives, rewards and sanctions and review of the NHS standard contract for 2014/15

NHS England has launched two engagement processes aimed at gauging the views of stakeholders on two related issues.

Everyone Counts: Planning for Patients 2013/14 set out a commitment to undertake a fundamental review of incentives, rewards and sanctions. This review is now getting under way, with involvement from the Commissioning Assembly working group on incentives. A discussion document, setting out specific issues and questions on which NHS England would welcome feedback is available.

NHS England is also beginning the process of reviewing the NHS standard contract for 2014/15. The standard contract is intended to be used by commissioners for all contracts for clinical services other than primary care. Again, a discussion document setting out specific issues and questions on which NHS England would welcome feedback is available.

The deadline for feedback for each topic is Friday 2 August 2013.
