Creating a new NHS England: NHS England and NHS Digital will merge on 1 February 2023. Learn more.


The eContract system allows healthcare commissioners to generate an NHS Standard Contract by selecting the relevant service categories and contract options.

The online system allows the contract content to be tailored to reflect the different services being provided (thus producing shorter, more relevant contracts), and makes the contract production process more efficient.

NHS England has instructed commissioners for all contracts for healthcare services (other than those in primary care) to use the NHS Standard Contract. It is available in both paper form and digitally through the eContract system.

NHS Digital provides application support, maintenance and hosting of the eContract system.
