PSNC Briefing 006/19: A summary of the NHS Operational and Contracting Guidance 2019/20 (January 2019)

In January 2018, NHS England and NHS Improvement published NHS Operational and Contracting Guidance 2019/20, which sets out system planning expectations, the financial settlement, full operational plan requirements and the process and timescales around the submission of plans. This replaces the previously-published guidance covering 2017-19.

Similar to the 2017-19 guidance, this guidance document focusses on set priorities identified by NHS England (published in the Long Term Plan), system controls and efficiency. This guidance however places greater emphasis on emerging structures such as Integrated Care Systems (ICSs)Primary Care Networks (PCNs) and technology.
