A significant number of providers are still yet to decide whether to accept NHS England and Monitor’s offer of a ‘voluntary’ tariff for 2015-16, with just a day to go until the offer expires, HSJ has been told.
NHS insiders in Greater Manchester have been pleasantly amazed by the speed at which negotiations progressed leading up to today’s historic agreement to devolve and integrate £6bn of health and social care spending for the conurbation.
NHS providers across Greater Manchester have called for a ‘new set of relationships’ with health regulators to underpin the newly agreed £6bn devolution of commissioning responsibilities to the conurbation.
