NHS England has developed a short-form version of the NHS Standard Contract for NHS Commissioners to use when commissioning certain non-primary healthcare services of relatively low coplexity and value.  The shorter=form contract may be used for services commencing 1 April 2016 and as well as being about a third of the length of the existing full-llength contract, is much simpler and less burdensome to use. 

You can have a look at the draft contract and also submit feedback (by 16 March 2016) by clicking on the lik below.
