Survey launched: Is the NHS Standard Contract a barrier to commissioning VCSE organisations?
We have been told that VCSE organisations find the NHS Standard Contract a barrier to having their services commissioned by the NHS. Consequently NHS chief, Simon Stevens, committed to exploring a shorter version of the NHS Standard Contract for low-value contracts, in the NHS Five Year Forward View.
Regional Voices, working with NHS England, is carrying out this survey to help understand specific issues which organisations have experienced in using the NHS Standard Contract. We expect the survey to take no more than 15 minutes. The survey will close at 10am on 27 July.
Take the survey about the NHS Standard Contract for VCSE organisations.
More information about VCSE commissioning issues in health and wellbeing and the background to this work on the Standard Contract.
NHS England will undertake its annual, wider, consultation in preparation for the 2016/17 Contract later this year, which VCSE organisations will also be invited to participate in.
