Description: To improve cost recovery from visitors and migrants (both EEA and non-EEA) in England to ensure that only those eligible receive free NHS healthcare.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Following the election the Programme has engaged with Ministers on an updated set of priorities, which include supporting better cost recovery performance within the NHS, delivering manifesto commitments on the Immigration Health Surcharge, and defining a post-EU exit cost recovery regime. Engagement with the leadership teams from NHS England and NHS Improvement to operationalise and embed upfront charging in both NHS and non-NHS trusts continues at pace, and working groups are fully established to take this forward. Nineteen NHS trusts have recommenced piloting to test models for implementing improved eligibility checking. The final report on the outcomes of the pilots will be completed in December 2017 and will inform advice to Ministers on next steps. The SRO has commissioned a senior stocktake of the Programme's IT strand to support more effective planning and resource allocation in this area in 2018/19. NHS Improvement continue to build their capability towards taking more direct responsibility for operational improvement support.
