About Monitor

As the sector regulator for health services in England, Monitor’s job is to make the health sector work better for patients.

Responsibilities

Within England, we make sure:

  • independent NHS foundation trusts are well-led so that they can provide quality care on a sustainable basis
  • essential services are maintained if a provider gets into serious difficulties
  • the NHS payment system promotes quality and efficiency
  • procurement, choice and competition operate in the best interests of patients

We are committed to preserving the values of the NHS as a universal health service, free at the point of use, as set out in the NHS Constitution.
