Key Messages Allocation to support delivery of General Medical Services and Personal Medical Services allocation is non-recurrent. At this stage the intention to make it recurrent and form part of unified allocations. PCTs will receive cash and resource limited allocations for commissioning Primary Care services. These funds will be allocated as part of the Primary Medical Services Allocation for April 2004.
The resource limit adjustment is equal to the allocation. A negative resource limit adjustment will be actioned to recover GMS cash-limited funding for practice staff, premises and IT. Previous GMS non-discretionary arrangements will cease. PCTs will be expected to manage the Primary Medical Services allocation alongside unified allocations to meet key national and local service targets. PCTs will have a responsibility to live within their overall cash and resource limited allocation.
