NHS Provider Selection regime: Consultation on proposals

Closes 7 Apr 2021

Opened 11 Feb 2021


We are inviting patients, NHS staff, partner organisations and interested members of the public to give us your views on proposals for a new NHS Provider Selection Regime, which sets out how decisions about who should provide health care services are made in future.

This consultation is being published alongside our Legislating for Integrated Care Systems: five recommendations to Government and Parliament, which details our vision for a more integrated, effective and responsive care system across England

Our proposals for a new Provider Selection Regime build on earlier consultation and engagement about proposals to change primary legislation to better enable integration and implement the NHS Long Term Plan. The proposed new regime will replace the current rules around procuring healthcare services, and is based on what we’ve heard from patients, clinicians, NHS leaders and partner organisations, as well as national professional and representative bodies.

We want to hear from as many people and organisations as possible. We intend use the information received from this consultation to further develop our proposals. We will not include your personal data in the information we share.

You can read more about the proposals, complete our survey and give us your views on the link below.
