NHS Standard Contract

The standard contract is mandated for use by NHS commissioners (CCGs and NHS England) for all of their healthcare commissioning contracts other than core primary care. 

Community services, such as a minor eye conditions service, are commissioned by CCGs.

Sometimes more than one CCG are party to the same contract with a single provider when commissioning a community service, with one CCG acting as coordinating commissioner.

LOC Companies sign the standard contract with the CCG(s) and use a network of subcontractor practices to deliver commissioned services. See our LOC Company Model. Without an LOC Company entering into contract with the CCG(s) and an individual practice acting as a subcontractor, individual practices must sign the Standard Contract with the CCG if they want to deliver a community service.

The Standard Contract comprises three sections:

  • General Conditions set out national terms that apply in all contracts
  • Service Conditions set out national terms that apply where specific services are being commissioned
  • Particulars set out who the contracting parties are and include schedules with locally-agreed detail.
