NHS England is currently looking at developing transitional care tariffs in palliative care and children and adolescent mental health services. There will be a currency and payment model for cleft lip and palate.

This forms part of the Transitional Care Programme, examining transitional arrangements. Areas of work include:

- diabetes;

- rehabilitation of complex disability; and

- children and adolescent mental health services.

The Transition Care Programme will be continually monitored. Rather than there being a collective “finish” date, this work will remain ongoing, with certain strands being rolled out as completed.
