The NHS Employers organisation welcomes today’s (7 February 2017) announcement by NHS England on changes to the GMS contract in England for 2017/18, negotiated by NHS Employers on behalf of NHS England. These changes take effect from 1 April 2017. 

Stephen Golledge, chief negotiator for the NHS Employers organisation, said:

"I am pleased that we have been able to achieve a negotiated agreement. The agreed changes will deliver considerable improvements in the quality of care provided to patients and reduce bureaucracy for GP practices, alongside a significant increase in the level of investment in primary care. Such an increase will help to alleviate some of the pressures GPs have experienced in recent years.”
