A General Medical Services (GMS) Ready Reckoner has been produced giving GMS practices an indication of changes in income streams from April.

Devised by NHS England in partnership with the BMA’s General Practitioners Committee, the Excel spreadsheet focuses on changes to funding streams announced through the GMS contract negotiations for 2018-19. These include:

  • Minimum Practice Income Guarantee (MPIG) Correction Factor payments;
  • Seniority payments;
  • Global Sum payments;
  • The Quality & Outcomes Framework (QOF);
  • the Out of Hours (OOH) per cent adjustment;
  • other factors such as changes to QOF achievement rates, numbers of patients with certain conditions.

The spreadsheet gives a total indicative net effect on income based on the estimate of the average number of weighted patients expected to be registered at the practice in 2018-19.
