Key elements of the 2014/15 contract for PMS practices

The deal for PMS practices has been announced by NHS England.

PMS practices will receive an uplift equal to their GMS counterparts
PMS practices will receive an uplift equal to their GMS counterparts

  • In line with GMS practices, NHS England has applied a 0.28% uplift to PMS practices, on the advice of the Doctors and Dentists Review Body.
  • GMS practices will benefit from a reinvestment of 238 QOF points in the global sum. Because the value of QOF points dropped this year is great than the value of the PMS deduction*, the deduction will be dropped. PMS practices will have baseline funding increased by an amount equal to the uplift for GMS, less the value of the PMS deduction.
  • PMS practices will receive the same enhanced service reinvestment as GMS counterparts and will receive the same funding for new enhanced services introduced in 2014/15 for avoiding unplanned admissions and for the Meningitis C vaccination programme for university freshers.
  • PMS practices' core funding per weighted patient will rise by £4.55 in 2014/15.

(* This deduction is approximately 100 QOF points; the adjustment was applied because many PMS practices already received this funding in their baselines when the QOF was introduced in 2004.)
