Monitor and the NHS Trust Development Authority (NHS TDA) propose to introduce caps on the total amount NHS providers can pay per hour for an agency worker. Monitor and the TDA will consider all responses to the consultation and decide whether, when and how to implement the price caps. Subject to that process, the aim is to introduce the price caps on 23 November 2015. The closing date for comments is 13 November 2015.
