    1. GP VTS Training Session 24th April 2012 General Practice Income Joanne Wales-Smith

    2. Aims • Understand sources of GP income • Understand structures that govern NHS income • Practical look at maximising income in general practice

    3. Objectives Participants will be able to • Identify sources of GP practice income • Describe operating / contractual framework for NHS income • Apply a service specification to a Practice situation

    4. Why important? • GP Partner – personal income • Efficiency of NHS income • Effectiveness of resources for benefit of patients

    5. PRACTICE INCOME ?

    6. PRACTICE INCOME NON- NHS INCOME Contract Global Sum NHS INCOME Reports & Certificates Minimum Practice Income Guarantee (MPIG) £ Private Rental Income QOF (Aspiration & Reward) Teaching Income Seniority Private Services Enhanced Services …………. Notional Rent & Service Charge Training Income

    7. Contents • Structure of NHS (& changes) • GMS Contract • PMS • QOF • Premises Income • Training Income • Enhanced Services

    8. Structure of NHS * ?

    9. Structure of NHS DoH 10 SHAs

    10. GMS – the last version • Red Book • Item of service approach • Per Doctor funding • National framework only • Contract between individual GP & DoH

    11. PMS?

    12. PMS • Brought in as an alternative to the Red Book & old inflexible system • Focused on special areas or needs • Additional funding for additional work / responsibilities • Contract between Practice & PCT • Separate contractual & monitoring arrangements

    13. GMS – the new contract • Set contractual framework nationally & ability to commission outside the framework for local needs • Re-distribute NHS budget – weighted population basis

    14. Carr-Hill formula Factors involved: • patient age and gender (used to reflect frequency of home and surgery visits) • additional needs: Standardised Mortality Ratio and Standardised Long-Standing Illness for patients under the age of 65 years • number of newly registered patients (generate 40% of work in 1st year) • rurality • costs of living in some area (ie South East - higher staff costs) • patient age/gender for nursing/residential consultations.

    15. GMS – the new contract • Set contractual framework nationally & ability to commission outside the framework for local needs • Re-distribute NHS budget – weighted population basis • Quality drive • Out of Hours / GP recruitment • Failed hospital contract

    16. Contract Structure Enhanced Services GMS Main Contract – global sum Essential Services Enhanced Services Additional Services* Enhanced Services Enhanced Services Enhanced Services QOF *Vacc & Imms 3%

    17. Key Aspects of nGMS Contract Contract between the Practice & the PCT The global sum allocation • covers the payments PCTs will make to GMS practices as a contribution towards the contractors’ costs in delivering essential and additional services. The Minimum Practice Income Guarantee (MPIG) • covers the payments PCTs will make to GMS practices to protect income levels in relation to some previous fees and allowances and is delivered through the correction factor. (no Practice worse off) “Global Sum Allocation Formula” QOF Enhanced Services • local flavour & flexibility

    18. nGMS – income statement *

    19. QOF * QOF Quiz – how much do you know about the QOF?

    20. The Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) • is the annual reward and incentive programme detailing GP practice achievement results. • is a voluntary process for all surgeries in England and was introduced as part of the GP contract in 2004. • awards surgeries achievement points for: • managing some of the most common chronic diseases e.g. asthma, diabetes • how well the practice is organised • how patients view their experience at the surgery • the amount of extra services offered such as child health and maternity services • http://www.dh.gov.uk/en/Policyandguidance/Organisationpolicy/Primarycare/Primarycarecontracting/QOF/index.htm

    21. Example of a Clinical Indicator * CHD Indicator 6

    22. Example of an Organisational Indicator *

    23. GP Registrar Involvement

    24. Changes to the QOF 2012/13 • the retirement of seven indicators (CHD13, AF4, QP1, QP2, QP3, QP4, QP5) releasing 45 points to fund new and replacement indicators • the replacement of seven indicators with eight NICE recommended replacement indicators, focusing on six clinical areas namely Diabetes, Mental Health, Asthma, Depression, Atrial Fibrillation and Smoking • the introduction of nine new NICE recommended clinical indicators, including two new clinical areas (Atrial Fibrillation, Smoking, PAD and Osteoporosis) • the introduction of three new organisational indicators for improving Quality and Productivity which focus on accident and emergency attendances • amendments to indicator wording for CHD9, CHD10, CHD14, STROKE12, DM26, DM27, DM28 and DEM3 • inclusion of telephone reviews for Epilepsy 6.

    25. Premises Income • Cost rent • Notional rent

    26. Cost Rent • The Cost Rent Scheme is no longer used. It previously existed for new extended or refurbished surgeries. • The Cost Rent Scheme, as its name implies, is more closely associated to the costs involved, as opposed to the associated rental levels. Its purpose was to reimburse the cost of finance from providing new or considerably modified buildings.

    27. Notional Rent • Re-imburse Doctors who own their surgery. • The Notional Rent remuneration based on the Current Market Rental (CMR) value for the property i.e. what it would let for on the open market. • District Valuer assesses for PCT. GPs can involve professional advisors. • A primary factor affecting value is location.

    28. Training Income • GP Registrars • Training grant for Practice - • Educational grant for Trainers - £750 • Salary & costs re-imbursed • Medical Students • Different payment structure for different years • Groups of 4 students over 4 years – differing payments

    29. Enhanced Services Directed Local National • Enhanced services are services not provided through essential or • additional services, • or essential and additional services delivered to a higher specified • standard. • Key tool to help PCTs reduce demand on secondary care. • Their main purposes are to expand the range of local services to meet local need, improve convenience and choice, and ensure value for money. They were designed to provide a major opportunity to expand and develop primary care, and give practices greater flexibility and the ability to control their workload.

    30. Directed Enhanced Services PCT has to commission these services for its population: • Access (have to offer to GPs) • IM&T (have to offer to GPs) • Violent Patients • Choose & Book • Childhood Imms

    31. National Enhanced Services PCTs don’t have to commission • Services commissioned to meet local need to national specifications and benchmark pricing. Other examples of NES are enhanced care of the homeless, more specialised services for multiple sclerosis and specialised care of patients with depression • E.g. IUCD, Minor Injuries, NPT, Amber Drugs

    32. Local Enhanced Services * Up to the PCT what they commission, how much & how • locally developed services designed to meet local health needs e.g. Wound Care North Yorkshire Enhanced Service Directory

    33. Examples of service specifications • Extended access • Minor surgery

    34. Any questions?

    35. Objectives Participants will be able to • Identify sources of GP practice income • Describe operating / contractual framework for NHS income • Apply a service specification to a Practice situation
