NHS Employers welcomes announcement on changes to the GP contract for 2016/17
The NHS Employers organisation welcomes today’s announcement by NHS England on changes to the GMS contract in England for 2016/17, negotiated by NHS Employers on behalf of NHS England. These changes take effect from 1 April 2016.
Stephen Golledge, lead negotiator for the NHS Employers organisation, said:

"We are pleased that after months of constructive negotiations we have been able to achieve an agreed contract. The changes will deliver considerable improvements in the quality of care provided to patients alongside a significant increase in the level of investment in primary care.  It will also help to alleviate some of the pressures GPs have experienced in recent years. We recognise that more progress is needed to respond to GP concerns about workload and we remain committed to work with the BMA General Practitioners Committee.”
