8. Gives five years of clarity and security for practice. Funding for primary and medical services will increase by more than $4.5 billion by 2023/24 and increase as a percentage of the overall NHS budget. This agreement now confirms the share of national legal rights envisaged for general practice in the context of network practice and contracts. GPC England and NHS England have agreed that we will not expect additional national funding for applications for practical or network contracts by 2024/25. Funding for the practice contract has now been agreed for each of the next five years and will increase by $978 million in 2023/24. Therefore, the DDRB will not make any recommendations on the net income of GP partners. As part of this agreement, we assume that firm staff, including employees, will receive at least 2.0% more in 2019/20, but the actual effect will depend on compensation schemes in practice. The NHSE and the GPC have asked the government to ask the DDRB not to make recommendations to employees for the 2019 payroll cycle. We also called on the government to continue to adopt recommendations on the remuneration of family physicians in the area of DDRB tasks from the 2020 salary cycle.
Recommendations must be informed by the affordability and, in particular, the fixed contractual resources available to practices under this agreement, and will influence family physician decisions regarding the remuneration of family physicians. We asked the government to ensure that the DDRB continues, as usual, to recommend GP apprentices, educators and evaluators. As now, the government will decide how to respond to the DDRB`s recommendations. A new compensation mechanism will be adjusted, if necessary, between the total amount and the amount of labour compensation in the network contract, based on the actual level of the partners` salaries. This will be designed in 2019 by NHS England and GPC England. Wage transparency will increase as a result of increased investment and public confidence in the GP partnership model. Family physicians with a total NHS salary of more than $150,000 per year will end up with a national publication by name and salary from 2019/20. At the same time, the government will attempt to introduce the same pay transparency for other NHS independent contractors. General practice is the foundation of the NHS, and the NHS relies on it to survive and prosper.
