Monitor's provider licence will be its key tool for regulating providers of NHS services. The licence will set out various conditions providers must meet, including conditions relating to: pricing; preventing anti-competitive behaviour which is against the interests of patients; enabling integrated care; supporting commissioners to maintain service continuity; and the governance of foundation trusts. This is the statutory consultation on the new provider licence.
