Payment by results (PbR)

Payment by results (PbR)

Mental health payment by results (PbR) was introduced to support patient choice, reward efficiency and quality, reduce waiting times and refocus discussions between commissioners and providers. We are currently supporting clusters in their preparation for the implementation of mental health PbR, including keeping key stakeholder up to date with developments at a regional and national level through various events and updates. We will be sharing best practice across London to ensure that a consistent approach is applied across the clusters.

The work programme for mental health PbR in 2012-13 is outlined in the current MH PbR PID v0.4.
