As set out in the NHS England Board Paper, improving the adoption of new technologies and treatments will be an important element of NHS England’s strategic framework for specialised services. As part of the work to develop that framework, NHS England will be working with a range of stakeholders to explore how alternative reimbursement models could be deployed, including in the context of the recommendations of the Accelerated Access Review due for publication this summer.
