The Five Year Forward View (5YFV) proposes a number of new models for providing NHS care that will break down barriers between GPs and hospitals, between physical and mental health and between health and social care, thereby helping promote person-centred and co-ordinated care for patients.
The efficiency of these new models is also expected to be crucial in closing the funding gap between available resources and patient needs that is projected without system change.
The examples below have been informed by the experiences of health and care economies in England and around the world and show how different payment approaches could help support the delivery of these new care models.
Background: reforming the NHS payment system
See how changes to the payment system will be critical for the adoption of the new models of care that does more for patients, and how the local payment examples may become payment approaches in the future.
