Draft mental health PbR guidance for 2012-13 and update on other PbR issues

This news article was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

David Flory, Deputy NHS Chief Executive, has written to the Health Service, and Directors of Adult Social Services, about publication of an early draft of the PbR guidance for 2012-13 for working age adults and older people.

Although such draft guidance is usually published in November or December each year, those involved in the provision and commissioning of adult mental health services felt it would be helpful for guidance to be issued earlier this year in light of the large scale change that is likely to take place next year. A final version of the guidance will be issued at the end of the year.
