Outcome of GMS 2017/18 Contract Negotiations
ON BEHALF OF GLENN COLEMAN
I am pleased to advise that agreement has been reached regarding the changes to the GMS contract for 2017/18 which will result in £238.7m investment across England. The changes aim to address concerns of the profession in relation to workload and increasing expenses and other agreed changes. The agreement also reflects commitments made as part of the General Practice Forward View (GPFV) and continues to make significant investment in primary care. Details of the agreement can also be found below
the NHS England dedicated GP contracts page which will be updated as the implementation guidance is agreed. Given the timing of this announcement NHS England will be implementing the changes to the Regulations from July 2017 at the earliest.
