Bma Update To The Gp Contract Agreement

8 04 2021

The updated contract also provides for the development, from April 2021, of a new “quasi-instantaneous measurement measure” for the patient experience at the national level. While measuring patient experience is essential, gathering meaningful feedback in real time poses technical and operational challenges. The updated contract provides details on the first three service specifications: improved care in care homes (in collaboration with municipal providers); Structured drug evaluation and drug optimization; and early diagnosis of cancer. Expectations for improved care in nursing homes and structured drug controls have been radically changed, which has introduced greater flexibility to take into account local context and capacity, and premium payments per bed have been included to account for differences in the distribution of care homes between networks. The three final specifications are now radically shorter, with the proposed metrics being replaced by a general network dashboard. For further questions, please contact england.gpcontracts@nhs.net There are other significant contract changes in the contract update, including an increase in the overall amount received by practices per patient, as well as changes to vaccination and vaccination regimens. Maternity medical care is becoming an essential service, with $12 million in new funding going to a 6 to 8-week universal health check for babies and new mothers. This registrant outlines the key elements of the final contract and the possible consequences for the general health system based on the information available in November 2020. NHS England should also be congratulated in the first place for the consultation (particularly given the time constraints imposed by the elections and the negotiations on the contractual terms of the GPs) and for reversing the returns received in such a short period of time. We look forward to continuing to work with our members and NHS England to ensure that this contract will lead to a real improvement in health care for the elderly. One of the main features of the 2019 GP contract was the additional roll refund system, which would support the recruitment of 20,000 additional staff in general practice until 2023/24.
