NHS Employers work with NHS England on negotiations with the General Practitioners Committee (GPC) of the British Medical Association, on changes to the General Medical Services (GMS) contract.
The first three-year GMS contract was introduced in 2003/04 for two years. Any agreed contract changes are underpinned by a Statement of Financial Entitlements (SFE) which are all available on the Department of Health's website.
Those aspects of the 2015/16 contract agreement that are core contractual requirements for all practices are covered by the new GMS and PMS regulations for 2015/16.
The main changes in each of the contracts are included in sections you can access below. Click on the page for more information and the full contract.
A set of FAQs has been developed to support the delivery of the 2015/16 GMS contract. The FAQs can be found on our non-clinical FAQs page.
