Payment by Results

Payment by Results (PbR) is managed by the Department of Health and provides a transparent, rules-based system for paying NHS funded care in England.

It rewards efficiency, supports PATIENT choice and diversity and encourages ACTIVITY for sustainable waiting time reductions.

Payment is linked to ACTIVITY and adjusted for casemix. Importantly, this system ensures a fair and consistent basis for hospital funding rather than being reliant principally on historic budgets and the negotiating skills of individual managers.
