NHS Standard Contract 2024/25: A consultation

Closed 26 Jan 2024

Opened 22 Dec 2023


This consultation asks for views from stakeholders on changes which NHS England proposes to make to the NHS Standard Contract for 2024/25.

The NHS Standard Contract  is published by NHS England for use by NHS commissioners to contract for all healthcare services other than primary care services. We are now consulting on changes for 2024/25 to both versions of the Contract – the full-length version, which is used to commission the bulk of such services by value, and the shorter-form version, which can be used in defined circumstances for certain less complex and typically lower cost services.  The consultation document and the updated draft Contracts are available on the NHS Standard Contract 2024/25 webpage

We strongly recommend that you read these documents before responding to this consultation. We welcome comments from stakeholders on our proposals, along with any other suggestions for improvement. For each area, please indicate whether a) your organisation supports the proposal, b) your organisation does not support the proposal, or c) the proposal is not applicable to your organisation, and add comments where relevant.
