NHS England advises that there have been no General Medical Services (GMS), Personal Medical Services (PMS) or Alternative Provider Medical Services (APMS) contracts procured in the Hampstead and Kilburn constituency since 2013.
NHS England has also confirmed that there have been no GMS or PMS contracts procured across the 32 London clinical commissioning group (CCG) areas for core general practitioner (GP) services since 2013. For APMS contracts across London, the numbers are as follows:
2013: 10 APMS contracts were issued (mostly by the outgoing primary care trusts).
2014: Nine APMS contracts were issued.
2015: Six APMS contracts were issued.
2016: 10 APMS contracts were issued.
2017: 0 APMS contracts have been issued so far, but 15 are currently under procurement.
The above figures exclude short-term caretaking contracts. Such contracts are included in the figures as and when the substantive contract is procured.
The figures consist of a mix of new procurements and re-procurements of existing services where either the contract has expired or has been terminated.
The figures also include contracts procured to provide core GP services. This would not include contracts provided by CCGs for non-core GP services such as community service or out of hospital services.
