NHS Employers demands 1.5% GP income increase

NHS Employers has called for the uplift to the GMS contract to be limited to 1.5% for 2009/10.

In evidence submitted to the Doctors' and Dentists' Review Body, NHS Employers say a 1.5% uplift, together with ‘additional income that GPs can earn outside GMS payments’ will result in a 2% income rise.

This would be in line with NHS Employer’s recommendation for other doctors, of 2%.

NHS Employers recommends the 1.5% uplift is applied differentially across the UK, in accordance with the new funding formula it developed with the GPC in October. 

The deal involves re-investing savings from correction factor cuts into global sum payments, to create a more equitable distribution of resources across GMS practices.
