Invoice Validation

The validation of invoices ensures that after we provide you with care and treatment we can be paid the correct amount.


NHS Shared Business Services process invoices on behalf of Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS FT. SBS do not require and should not receive any patient confidential data to provide their services. However before payment can be received by the Trust, the respective Clinical Commisioning Group (CCG) needs to validate the invoice – i.e. ensure that the treatment and amount is correct. In order to do this, personal confidential data is submitted by the Trust to an approved and controlled secure environment within the CCG. Only certain data can be submitted, and only when it is necessary for the validation process. The identifier used for invoice validation is NHS number or the local provider ID if the NHS number is not known to the provider, e.g. hospital number. The CCG uses this information to check that the relevant invoice is correct and ready to be paid by the CCG.

The CCG has a duty to detect report and investigate any incidents where a breach of confidentiality has been made.
