Really useful timetable
On 10 January, NHS digital uploaded a spreadsheet which may be worth printing off. It is a live collection timetable and it tells you about all the different types of GP collections and GP payments for January, February and March 2017.
GP Payments from NHS digital
NHS Digital has uploaded, what I think is, a really useful document on the GP payments and collections area of the website. This will be of particular interest to new managers who are trying to grasp the GP payments system. Equally, existing managers will find it a useful checklist tool for payments to ensure they can cross-check the payments they receive so that nothing is missing. With all the changes, it can be quite a challenge to keep up with ensuring you have made all your claims, but this aid memoire is helpful.
