Dawn asks about price caps for agency staff

Dawn To ask the Secretary of State for Health, whether his Department monitors implementation of price caps for agency staff.

 

Answered by Ben Gummer, Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department of Health)
Hourly price caps are one part of a series of tough financial controls we introduced last year to help the National Health Service tackle overspending on agency staff. NHS Improvement consulted on the price caps before they were introduced and, with NHS England and the Care Quality Commission, has been monitoring their implementation on a weekly basis.
