Pcn Initial Network Agreement
Posted On April 11, 2021
In addition to the current funds for the promotion of the GPFV and the GCC, additional funds are available for the networks. Please note that GPDF may, from time to time, update and revise schedules, either in response to initial comments or to reflect network issues in practice. These documents are intended for the Network Contract Directed Enhanced Service and contain the mandatory network agreement and network agreement schedules. An “original” network agreement is the most important part of this proposal and the use of the national model is mandatory. The network contract must be concluded and signed by June 30, 2019. … The aim is to bring together different primary service providers within networks, including in general practice, but also other providers and the voluntary sector and the community itself, to design and provide services tailored to the specific needs of the Community, in order to network and try to achieve all the benefits that this would bring. [N800zf] Once the NCPs were approved by their GCC, they were eligible for the initial financial fees, which include $1.50 per patient for participation, funded by the GCC Basic Allowance; 0.25 full-time equivalent for 50,000 CD funding per capita and additional function funding. The latter was weighted according to the Carr Hill formula, taking into account discrimination and the burden of disease.
The initial focus was on the recruitment of employees of social prescriptions (100% and clinical pharmacists (initially funded at 70). NCPs have also taken responsibility for providing extensive access routines on evenings and weekends; These were previously financed by a self-sustaining DES payment to firms. No additional funding was allocated for administrative or administrative costs. For the initial bid, it is not necessary for the network agreement to be in a definitive form. Until May 15, 2019, only the numbers and trades within the networks will be flexible. Each network receives an annual payment of $1.50 per patient. Structured drug evaluations must be provided by individual practices assisted by pharmacists. However, in order to carry out these checks, pharmacists need a prescription qualification and not all pharmacists recruited have this additional training.
It is therefore likely that this work will develop on family physicians and all nurses with prescription qualifications. The strengthening of care in care homes will be done in collaboration with municipal service providers, as well as in proactive supervision, both of which will require the establishment of multidisciplinary networks. The specifications of the personalized care service indicate a better articulation with voluntary community groups and the provision of personal health budgets. It is proposed that this improves the health of the population and reduces the use of secondary care services. Finally, the specifications for early detection of cancers refer to closer cooperation between family physicians and other service providers such as cancer alliances, secondary care and public health teams.
