National Sanctions Publication
The NHS National Standard Contract 2015/16 introduced a requirement for all commissioners to publish details on the sanctions that are applied to each of their main providers on their website.
Penalties are applied in line with the national Operational Standards and the National Quality Requirements set out in Schedules 4A and 4B of the Contract Particulars.
Details on penalties only need to be reported where the sanction exceeds £1,000 in the reporting period and where the penalty is only applied annually, this will be reported annually.
For further details, please refer to Appendix 6 of the Technical Guidance, www.england.nhs.uk/nhs-standard-contract.
