The national tariff is a set of prices and rules used by providers of National Health Service care and commissioners to deliver the most efficient, cost effective care to patients.

The tariff for Mildmay Mission Hospital tariff is 50% higher than the acute provider tariff.

Admissions to Mildmay Mission Hospital are based on agreed clinical criteria and on the ability of the service to meet a patient’s needs, and are not based on cost.
