The NHS Standard Contract for Community Services is an agreement made by the Commissioner with the Health Care Provider to secure the provision of general community-based and out of hospital care SERVICES by the Health Care Provider.
It is normally used if one of the following criteria applies:
- Where a Primary Care Trust providers deliver general community based and out of hospital care.
Where a commissioner contracts with a Health Care Provider for a significant range of acute, mental health or Ambulance SERVICES, as well as a significant range of general community SERVICES then it will be appropriate to agree more than one contract with this provider.
