NHS England to award ten-year £100 per patient APMS contract


£100/pt is still not adequate for any contract. for those being paid less (once you adjust it with all the extras which are paid on top of £/pt) if its still less than £100/pt: move to a better contract! We have an APMS contract: paid nearly the same rate but lots of tick boxes before we get paid such amount including more appts/1000pts, achieving all KPI otherwise money gets withdrawn, in-house phlebotomy service including in it etc. We took over a surgery which was failing, was significantly overbudget, high referral rates, 60 appts/1000 pts/week. 4yrs down the line: we are now in budget, slightly high in referral rates compared to baseline but nowhere near what it used to be >5yrs ago and provide >80 appts/1000pts/week. before any GMS/PMS partner comments on this please add all the additional income to compare like for like.
