Get to grips with the Policy and Guidance Manual

NHS England periodically updates the Policy and Guidance Manual. The manual for medical contracting provides essential information for contracting teams responsible for GMS, PMS and APMS, the primary medical services contracts.

This updated event builds on the success of the original series of events run by PCC on behalf of NHS England in late 2017 shortly after the introduction of the first edition of the Policy and Guidance Manual and incorporates subsequent updates. The event on 19 May 2020 in Birmingham, 3 June 2020 in Leeds and 9 June 2020 in London. provides a useful refresher and update for existing teams and a timely introduction to the subject for new commissioning staff, helping commissioners to avoid the risk of time-consuming and costly challenges to primary medical contracts.
