This document contains written evidence from NHS England to inform the Review Body on Doctors’ and Dentists’ Remuneration (DDRB) report on 2014/15 pay for their remit group. There are two chapters in this document.

One chapter provides detailed information on general medical practitioners providing NHS primary care services in England. The material in this chapter provides background information for DDRB members on recruitment and retention, earnings and expenses, and other relevant developments in general practice. In view of the on-going negotiations on possible changes to the General Medical Services contract, NHS England is not yet in a position to provide evidence on the level of gross uplift it deems appropriate for 2014/15.

The second chapter provides an update on general dental practitioners (GDPs) providing NHS primary care services and those salaried GDPs on terms and conditions set by NHS organisations in England. This is the fourth year of the Government’s public sector pay policy. The Government has announced that public sector pay increases will be capped at an average 1% increase for 2014/15. NHS England will meet the General Dental Practice Committee of the British Dental Association in early autumn to discuss practice expenses and possible quality and efficiency improvements for 2013/14. NHS England believe that overall levels of uplift for independent contractors are best considered as part of such discussions with the profession’s representatives about on-going improvements in contractual arrangements, provided that it is possible to secure appropriate improvements in quality and efficiency of services.
