NHS contracts data is 'too poor'22nd September 2011
The Audit Commission has issued a warning over some of the data used for NHS contracts.
In its annual report on its Payment by Results assurance programme, the Audit Commission says that an audit of the reference costs that determine tariff and local prices showed that it was of such poor quality that it should not be used to extend national pricing to more services. The commission raised concerns that not only may local contract be based on poor date but they may also be open to manipulation.
