PSNC Briefing 018/19: A summary of the Network Contract Directed Enhanced Service (DES) 2019/20

At the end of January 2019, NHS England published a five-year framework for GP services agreed with the British Medical Association (BMA) General Practitioners Committee (GPC) in England and supported by Government. One of the major changes in the contract is the introduction of the Network Contract as a Directed Enhanced Service (DES). This will enable general practice to take a leading role in every Primary Care Network (PCN) and it goes live on 1st July 2019.

NHS England has now published the DES specification accompanied by guidance to provide additional information to support the Network Contract DES.

This PSNC Briefing summarises the Network Contract DES, highlighting aspects of relevance to Local Pharmaceutical Committees (LPCs) and community pharmacy contractors.
