Changes to the 2017-2019 Hospital Contract - April 2017
Date published: 20/04/2017
Please find attached a letter from Chaand Nagpaul about the changes to the 2017-19 hospital contract which are designed to further reduce inappropriate workload on GP practices, and also improve patient care across the primary/secondary care interface.
The letter includes links to template letters through our Quality First resource to help LMCs hold both CCGs and Trusts accountable for the implementation of these new contractual requirements.
Kent LMC are currently discussing the letter and templates and will be writing to CCGs and local hospitals as requested by the GPC.
