The Health Network North is excited to be launching a brand-new programme of free webinars – “Unlocking barriers to accessing the NHS” - to help North East SMEs engage more effectively with the NHS.

The aim of the event will provide an introduction to the NHS Contracting and Tariff System for innovators and North East SMEs.

Alastair Brett, Senior Engagement Manager, Pricing and Costing and colleagues from NHS England and NHS Improvement, will share insights on:

• Introducing the national tariff, explaining the principles that underpin it, its scope and structure, the key building blocks of the system and how it is implemented – and varied away from – within the NHS.

• Future tariff developments, such as blended payments, and how future tariffs could build on the payment arrangements introduced for 2020/21.

• Ways that the tariff has been seen as a barrier to innovation, and how tariff changes could be more supportive.
