The 2015/16 national tariff: a resource pack for boards

20 / 02 / 2015

Monitor and NHS England have written to all providers of NHS services to outline an ‘enhanced option’ for the NHS payment system for 2015/16, which would replace original proposals in the 2015/16 national tariff for any providers voluntarily agreeing to it  the enhanced tariff option.

Providers not selecting this option will be paid on the basis of the prices in the 2014/15 tariff being rolled over until a new agreement can be reached  the default tariff pption.

All providers of NHS-funded services have until 4 March to select an option.


The NHS Confederation has received a number of questions from members on the tariff options and has worked with Monitor to develop a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document

If you have any further questions, please email Paul Healy at
