Background to the collection
The Government has amended the NHS (General Medical Services Contracts) Regulations 2015 (the “GMS Regulations”) and the NHS (Personal Medical Services Agreements) Regulations 2015 (the “PMS Regulations”) from 1 October 2021 to require a contract with an individual medical practitioner or a partnership to contain a term requiring the contractor to make a self-declaration to NHS Digital if their NHS earnings exceed the threshold for the relevant year (as well as a term requiring this self-declaration requirement to flow down into any clinical subcontracts). These changes have also been reflected in an amendment to the APMS Directions 2020.
This requirement will begin for 2019-20 NHS earnings and individuals who have NHS earnings of over £150,000 in 2019-20 will be required to self-declare. The full details of who is required to make the self-declaration, the definition of NHS earnings for the purpose of general practice pay transparency and the process for making the self-declaration can be found in the general practice pay transparency guidance.
