Do we get appraisal costs?

Will we still receive appraisal costs under GMS2?

The following clear statement concerning funding streams for appraisal is made on page 4 of the Primary Medical Services Allocations 2004/5 ­ HSC 2004/003: 'This allocation covers funding for appraisal for GMS practices. Over time the aim is to pay this as part of the global sum.'

Appraisal costs will not be included in the global sum at the outset, but in the fullness of time this will probably change.
