Welcome to the NTPF website.

The NTPF is an independent statutory body established by the Minister for Health.

Its key functions are:

  • Collecting, collating and validating information on persons waiting for public hospital treatment;
  • Agreeing pricing arrangements with private & voluntary nursing homes under the Nursing Homes Support Scheme
  • Furnishing advice to the Minister for Health on related issues
  • Performing any other function assigned by the Minister for Health, since July 2012 this includes responsibility for the publication of outpatient waiting lists

The NTPF previously arranged for the provision of hospital treatment to classes of persons determined by the Minister. Since 2011 this function has been suspended.

In carrying out its functions, the NTPF works closely with the Department of Health, the HSE, acute public hospitals and private nursing homes across the health system.
