GP Contract Services 2014-15

Publication date

August 12, 2016


Summary

GP Contract Services form part of the General Medical Services (GMS) contract, which is agreed between NHS England and the British Medical Association's (BMA) General Practitioners Committee (GPC). The GMS contract covers the delivery of primary care services across England.

GP Contract Services include:

  • Core contract components: These are core contract requirements that are part of the GMS contract; GP practices are required to carry out these services as set out in the GMS Regulations.
  • Enhanced services (ES): These are voluntary reward programmes that cover primary medical services; one of their main aims is to reduce the burden on secondary care services.
  • Vaccination and immunisation programmes: These are programmes that are commissioned for delivery by GP practices following recommendations from the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations (JCVI).
  • Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF): This is a voluntary annual reward and incentive programme for all GP practices in England. Note that the QOF data are not published under the GP Contract Services publications as the HSCIC produces a separate QOF publication, which is available on the HSCIC QOF webpage.
  • Indicators no longer in QOF (INLIQ): These are indicators that have been removed from QOF but are still used for management information purposes.

GP Contract Service data are primarily used for payment and management information purposes; however, the data may be more widely used to help support commissioning, planning and policy decisions.

The GP Contract Services data are collected by the HSCIC via the Calculating Quality Reporting Service (CQRS) and General Practice Extraction Service (GPES).

The GP Contract Services 2014-15 publications are referred to as experimental statistics. This means that the data are in a testing phase and are not yet fully developed. See the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Guide to experimental statistics for further information.

Notice to users: On 11/10/2016 the Learning Disabilities Health Check Scheme 2014/15 Excel file was reissued due to a mapping error between practice names and practice codes in the Quarter_4 tab of the spreadsheet only. Practice codes were correct in the document but the names had been mapped incorrectly.
