Consultation description

The development of the Accountable Care Organisations contract has identified some necessary changes to regulation. This is largely to ensure that current rules continue to apply to the new contract, and the organisations using it. It also increases flexibility in some cases, for example for GPs who wish to enter into ACO arrangements without terminating their existing contracts.

NHS England will continue to develop this contract further over the next year, with a view to consulting on a final version in 2018.
