18 Publication of earnings NHS Employers and the GPC have agreed to form a working group with NHS England, to develop proposals on how the publication of GP NHS net earnings relating to the contract should be implemented for 2015/16. The working group will ensure that the calculation and publication of GP net earnings is on a like for like basis with other healthcare professionals. Publication of this information will be a contractual requirement (in line with arrangements for others in the NHS).

19 Friends and Family Test A contractual requirement from December 2014 How likely are you to recommend our practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment? One follow-up question chosen by practice Monthly feedback to NHS England Replaces survey in Patient Participation DES PP DES funding reduced to £20m and £40m added to core funding

20 Choice of GP practice Government committed to roll out of current pilot from October 2014 despite GPC, RCGP and CCGs concerns – Pilots showed very small uptake from patients Not just commuters – more likely to be patients moving outside practice boundary wishing to stay with a practice No obligation to visit these patients Practice involvement voluntary May be reduced global sum for these patients NHS England responsible for in-hours urgent medical care for these patients if unable to attend their registered practice Full details still to be developed

22 Seniority (2) 2 years before figures available to show whether 15% saving made from retirements If less than 15% NHSE and GPC to agree process for achieve this Seniority funding has been static for 9 years and real-terms value eroded by inflation Transferred funding to global sum not subject to 6% OOH rebate and could increase with DDRB awards
