During an elective wait, there may be a change of commissioner, for example, a PATIENT may move house while waiting for admission into hospital. Alternatively there may be a change in service agreements with the same commissioner. Changes of commissioner result in a NHS SERVICE AGREEMENT CHANGE.

An NHS SERVICE AGREEMENT CHANGE does not apply to a change of provider. A provider change would always require a new DECISION TO ADMIT with the Patient being placed on a new ELECTIVE ADMISSION LIST
