Payment by results

Payment by Results (PbR) is the transparent rules-based payment system in England under which commissioners pay healthcare providers for each patient seen or treated, taking into account the complexity of the patient’s healthcare needs. PbR promotes efficiency, supports patient choice and increasingly incentivises best practice models of care.

PbR currently covers the majority of acute healthcare in hospitals, with national tariffs for admitted patient care, outpatient attendances, accident and emergency (A&E), and some outpatient procedures. The Government is committed to expanding PbR by introducing currencies and tariffs for mental health, community and other services.
