General practitioner GP practices

Focus on how your practice is funded

This guidance helps GPs, practice managers and LMC staff understand how individual practices receive funding under the GMS contract. This document only deals with income from the GMS contract, and does not include other income streams, such as training grants. We would advise all GPs to read the contract document and supporting documentation.

This guidance is relevant UK wide, although there are some differences in the way in which funding is allocated in different countries. Where applicable, these differences have been noted in the text. Readers should also note that, for simplicity, the guidance links primarily to English source documents.
