Pulse wants to hear GP partners’ views on the network contract DES proposals recently published by NHS England that include the requirement for GPs to visit care home patients fortnightly.
In our short survey, we want to know how feasible it will be for practices to deliver the requirements of the five new service specifications and whether this will affect partners’ decision to sign up to this year’s network contract DES.
The service specifications were first announced as part of the five-year deal for the GP contract a year ago, which financially incentivised GP practices to join new primary care networks by signing the network contract DES.
But details on the service specifications, due to be delivered from April onwards, have only just been revealed – and so we want to know partners’ thoughts.
By leaving contact details as part of the survey, GPs will be entered into a prize draw, with possibility of winning £100 of John Lewis vouchers.
