Simon Stevens, CEO of NHS England and David Bennett, CEO of Monitor have written to providers of NHS-funded services setting out a new enhanced tariff option for 2015-16. It is worth up to £500m more to providers than the original package that was consulted on last November, which was set prior to extra funding being made available to the NHS in December’s Autumn statement.

Simon Stevens said: “The NHS is looking for certainty about next year, and a constructive and shared approach to helping hospitals with the genuine pressures they’re facing. This new funding option offers that, without sacrificing critical new investments in primary and mental health services."
