General Medical Services (GMS) registration

The contractual requirement of the General Medical Services (GMS) Contract 2017/18 (page 64) to accept patients from the secure estate prior to their release has increased importance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pre-registration will support the smooth rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine. For individuals leaving the secure estate between the first and second doses of their vaccination who have been registered with a community GP, their GP record will be updated with their vaccination status. GP practices are asked to ensure that processes are in place to meet this requirement.
