- 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.)
