CHE Policy Forum
The way the NHS pays providers of emergency healthcare has been changing with an increasing emphasis on what is called blended payment. This means that there is discretion to move away from nationally set prices and ‘blend’ activity-based payments with a fixed element of payment. This talk will review research we have undertaken aimed at understanding how these changes might affect delivery of emergency healthcare in the NHS. We highlight that it is particularly important to understand how local discretion regarding payment entails both benefits and risks.
Martin Chalkley in discussion with Anita Charlesworth, Director of Research and REAL Centre at The Health Foundation, and Martin Campbell, Head of Pricing at NHS England.
