ms tariffsMS tariffs 2010-11
Since the introduction of the system of payment by results in 2003, hospitals have been entitled to a nationally agreed flat fee for NHS work (NB all activity with a national mandatory tariff needs to have a 'market forces factor' added on, depending on area). MS tariffs are listed below, with main tariffs in orange
