The General Medical Services (GMS) provided by a GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER are normally provided under a standard national contract between GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS and the Secretary of State for Health. A Personal Medical Services contract allows GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS and other NHS staff or organisations to contract for such services under an alternative arrangement with their PRIMARY CARE TRUST.
Although these contracts are with individual GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS, all the GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS within a particular GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER PRACTICE should have the same type of contract.
