HQIP 'Time to Pay' data

In line with Government procurement policy, HQIP now publishes the turnaround time for paying it's contracted suppliers. Read the 2015/16 results here. HQIP endeavours to pay all invoices within agreed terms and understands the importance of this to our suppliers. Analysis of the last year’s activity identified that the majority of delays in payment have occurred due to:

  • Late receipt of invoices by the HQIP Finance team from suppliers or
  • When contract deliverables require discussion

To help address the late receipt, we will be working with suppliers to request that all invoices are sent promptly to finance@hqip.org.uk in the first instance, rather than to individual members of staff.

In 2015, HQIP commissioned the National Mortality Case Record Review programme including Lot 2, which aimed to provide an annual national-level estimate of the overall proportion of deaths due to problems in care in English acute hospitals which could act as a measure of the safety of NHS care. The evaluation panel were however unable to recommended contract award for Lot 2. As a result NHS Improvement is considering how best to achieve this aim and has been reviewing issues such as determining the most appropriate sample size for detecting change over time. Once this internal review has completed, we will be able to advise on revised timescales.
