Spinal surgery best practice tariff

A best practice tariff was introduced in 2019/20 to support meaningful comparison and analysis of spinal surgery and help reduce variation in patient treatment and outcomes.

Work is underway on reports to enable commissioners to determine if the 50% attainment rate has been met. Arden & GEM CSU will provide hospital-level data to NHS England and NHS Improvement regional offices. The reports will include a year-to-date calculation to take account of the time lag in reporting. Further updates will be issued via the enquiry and FAQ log.
