Safeguarding Reports and CNSGP

Following further discussions on some of the finer definitions of the scope of CNSGP, BMA GPC are pleased to announce that it has been agreed with DHSC and NHS Resolution that the compiling of safeguarding reports for NHS patients will now be included within scope. It was initially thought that as these reports can be chargeable under collaborative fees arrangements they should be deemed to be private work and, therefore, out of scope. However, lobbying from the BMA extended an alternative view of these statutory reports as being reimbursed by the system rather than a private service to patients. This perspective has been accepted by DHSC and NHSR and, therefore, actions originating from the completion of safeguarding reports after 1stApril 2019 will be covered by CNSGP.
