NHS England has said commissioners should increase PMS payments by £3.95 per weighted patient and APMS payments by £3.65 per weighted patient.
This increase reflects the overall funding uplift secured in the GMS deal that includes funding to cover additional expenses realting to CQC costs, professional indemnity insurance, employer national insurance and superannuation costs, the reinvestment of the dementia enhanced service into core funding and a 1% pay uplift.
The PMS payment also takes account of reinvestment of a propoprtion of seniority payment into core funding as these payments are phased out.
Out of hours opt-out deduction
The PMS out-of-hours deduction for 2016/17 is £4.15 per weighted patient.
This does not apply where no out-of-hours deduction featured in PMS and APMS contracts.
Other funding changes
- The value per QOF point increases from £160.15 to £165.18 to take account of population growth and relative changes in practice list sizes.
- The item of service fee for vaccinations and immunisations has increased from £7.64 per dose to £9.80 per dose.
