Message from Richard Vautrey, Chair of GPC - Vote on PCN DES

Date sent: Wednesday 6 January 2021

All Somerset GPs  (Practice Managers for information )

Dear Colleagues

As you will be aware in November the LMC England conference passed a resolution requiring GPC England to seek a mandate on the Primary Care Network Directed Enhanced Service (PCN DES) before continuing with negotiations on the extension of the DES for 2021/22.

To meet the requirements set out by the LMC Conference we are therefore now holding a vote on the PCN DES, which will run until 23:59 on Tuesday 19 January and is open to all GPs in England, regardless of contractual status (partner/sessional/trainee) or BMA membership status.

We know that this remains an extremely busy and challenging time for all in general practice and I apologise for the timing of this survey. However, the outcome of the vote will determine how GPC England proceeds with negotiations on important planned contractual changes for 2021/22 and beyond. 

To help inform the vote a short briefing on the vote and the PCN DES can be found here  (full detail on the DES is available on the NHS England and BMA websites ) and we are also able to release the results of the BMA’s latest annual survey of PCN Clinical Directors. Further communications will also go out over the course of the two weeks.

Thank you for your assistance in this important vote.

R Vautrey Signature

Dr Richard Vautrey
BMA GP committee chair
