As recently published in NHS England’s GP Forward View document, changes have been made to the NHS standard Contract with the aim of preventing inappropriate and avoidable work being dumped on to general practice. The changes are as attached and give your CCG the contractual mechanism by which to prevent secondary care providers from continuing to behave inappropriately. Any instances where your practice is affected by hospitals behaving in breach of these contractual changes should be brought to the attention of both your CCG and the LMC in order that secondary care providers can be held fully to account.
