GP contract funding figures 2019/20

The following has been received from the BMA for your information:

Please see below table with updated GP contract funding figures for 2019/20 following the contract agreement a few weeks ago.

Figure 2018/19 2019/20
Value of QOF point £179.26 £187.74
Global Sum price per weighted patient £88.96 £89.88
Out of Hours adjustment 4.87% 4.82%
Participation payment £105m total
Annual payment per weighted patient* £1.761

*This figure will be paid in instalments direct to practices, upon signing up the PCN DES.

These figures have been agreed between NHS England and GPC England – the BMA GP contract webpage will be updated shortly with these figures. These figures include the recycling of MPIG and Seniority into global sum, and therefore the figures represent greater than the 1.4% contact uplift noted in the contract agreement document.

In addition to the above, a one-off payment to cover indemnity inflation arising in 2018/19 is planned for March 2019 – this figure is still being calculated and information will be provided soon.

The above figures are in addition to the other financial agreements, for example uplift S7a V&I programmes, all funding via the network, and the delivery of the state-backed indemnity scheme, and do not include payments for any uplift in employer pensions contributions which will be funded separately.
