New funding models


What are we working on?

To support members to influence the development of new funding models, we are focusing on:

  • influencing the development of the NHS payment system
  • supporting the development of new payment and costing models

Reforming the NHS payment system  

A payment system aligned to the needs of the patient is an essential element of any sustainable model of urgent and emergency care provision. 

Current work highlights


We've already begun to engage with Monitor and NHS England on the tariff arrangements for 2016/17. Monitor published a blog post about the timetable and we want to ensure members across the system are engaged as early as possible.

To get involved or for more information contact Paul Healy on paul.healy@nhsconfed.org.  

Previous work highlights

  • In the lead up to the 2015 election, we pushed for an increase in the pace of payment system reform, through the 2015 Challenge campaign;
  • We highlighted members' views to the Health Select Committee, giving both oral and written evidence to their inquiry into public expenditure in health and care;          
  • We responded to NHS England and Monitor's 2015/16 National Tariff consultation.

Developing new systems and models

It is important that all sectors are engaged to ensure that any new costing models or payment systems are fit for purpose.

Current work highlights

  • We will be holding a roundtable in the autumn, with the royal colleges, to discuss how clinical models and input can help shape financial models.
  • We will be supporting Monitor to disseminate the learning from the pilot sites currently developing new costing models.

Watch this space for more information.

Previous work highlights


In 2014 we brought members together with Monitor to test their developing urgent care costing models.
