GPs can keep 70% of commissioning savings, says DoH

Practices will be able to retain at least 70 per cent of savings under practice-based commissioning, the DoH has confirmed.

The 'clarification' follows GP unrest over a paragraph in DoH guidance which appeared to state that any savings could be used to plug PCT deficits.

A DoH spokesman said: 'Practices and PCTs may agree that a proportion of freed-up resources - a maximum of 30 per cent - should go to the PCT.

'This will help ensure that practices are able to access the majority of freed-up resources for reinvestment.'
