Primary Medical Services Allocation Personal Medical Services
PMS Allocations PMS forms part of Primary Medical Services Allocations to PCTs, as notified on 6 February Broad principles of how PMS works will remain the same - schemes based on locally agreed contracts.
Supporting Principles /05 Primary Medical Services Allocations Single Primary Medical Services allocation for PMS and GMS - to deliver primary care. PCTs will have flexibility in determining how they use their primary care allocations between GMS and PMS. PCTs will have some restrictions, such as: - the need to fund all primary care contractual commitments they have entered into deliver the floor on enhanced services; - meet key service targets.
Beyond these constraints, PCTs will be free to make best use of the funding available to them for primary care commissioning. PCTs will always need to be able to demonstrate that funding decisions between GMS, PMS and any other primary care contractual arrangements they enter into are fair, equitable and transparent. Alongside this increased flexibility, PCTs will continue to have a responsibility to live within their overall cash and resource limited resource allocation. The resources made available to PCTs for primary care services will cover funding for new PMS schemes, any new investment in existing PMS schemes, and to meet the appropriate and reasonable costs of practices that move between GMS and PMS contractual arrangements.
AWP ( ) PCT PMS Baseline Allocation - Determining Allocation Baseline AWP 12 informed PCTs of the final PMS Baseline position for 2003/04. PMS Allocations funded in 2003/04 from PMS Discretionary Budget. The PMS Baseline is made up of all 2003/04 allocations that had year-on-year implications, to include full year effect, and 2003/04 uplift of 3.225%. It excludes non-recurrent allocations.
The PMS baseline covers: - Main allocations for waves 1 to 5b; - In-year lump-sum allocation to support changes to in-year activity (exceptional changes and actual costs); - Additional funding for rent increases; - Contract Variations, including mergers and splits; - Allocation adjustments that support baseline activity year-on-year. The 2003/04 PMS Baseline excludes: /04 allocations for quality preparation payments; /04 allocations for flu, pneumococcal and HIB; - PMS funding in the Unified Budget.
