The new provider licence

Monitor’s new provider licence has now been finalised and published, and is the new main tool that will regulate providers of NHS services.

Monitor has agreed with ministers that foundation trusts will be licensed from April 2013, and other eligible NHS providers from April 2014.

The licence has been shaped by stakeholders’ responses to their extensive engagement and consultation during 2012.  A summary of consultation feedback and the final licence conditions is available here.

Monitor is holding four regional events in London, Leeds and Birmingham to update NHS providers and commissioner on the preparations for the new regulatory system. These will cover the NHS provider licence and how it will be enforced, and will be an opportunity to feed back views on the proposed risk assessment framework.
