GPC negotiators say the DoH has acknowledged that the Doctors’ and Dentists’ Review Body’s recommendation to cut correction factors is illegal, so is now consulting on how to implement it legally.
The move means that the 2.7 per cent global sum uplift proposed by the DDRB will be absorbed by an equivalent cut to correction factors for the 90 per cent of practices which rely on MPIG.
In October practices without an MPIG will receive a lump sum equivalent to a 2.7 per cent uplift in their global sum backdated to April.
The result of the DoH consultation is expected to be a formality.
