This reports the NHS payments to General Practice in England by individual provider of general practice services and main payment category which includes Global Sum, the Minimum Practice Income Guarantee (MPIG), Balance of PMS expenditure, Quality Outcomes Framework (QOF) and Enhanced Services.
The data are extracted from the HSCIC GP Payments system (National Health Applications and Infrastructure Services (NHAIS) - also known as "Exeter") and apply to the period 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015. The figures include NHS payments and any deductions made through the HSCIC GP Payments system and were made primarily to GP practices although other providers of general practice services that received payments through the payments system are also included.
The figures reflected in this report exclude invoices raised by general practice service providers that were paid directly from other sources such as NHS England Area Teams or Local Authorities. These payments represent the bulk of the General Practice income but do not represent profits as they do not take into account the costs incurred in delivering primary care services.
