Enhanced services (ES) require an enhanced level of provision above what is required under core GMS contracts. Commissioners taking part in the ES should ensure they have read and understood the requirements in the Directions and NHS England service specifications, as well as the guidance provided.
The full set of Enhanced Services can be found on the NHS England ES web page.
A set of FAQs has been developed to support commissioners in delivery of the 14/15 GMS contract. The FAQs can be found on our ES FAQs page.
The legislation underpinning these DESs is set out in the DES Directions and the Statement of Financial Entitlements Directions
