NHS England recognises that atypical practices with a significantly skewed patient population will not necessarily have their workload reflected through the Carr-Hill Formula. It is for this reason that NHS England is exploring the additional demands on atypical practices, testing out in the first instance, the experiences of practices that serve university populations, practices with significant number of non-English speaking patients, and practices operating within remote or isolated areas.

Commissioner guidance was published in December 2016 and further analysis of the workload implications is being undertaken.
