Locum GP employer’s contribution is being transferred to practice global sums

6th December 2012 by NASGP

Following the news earlier this week that, from 1st April 2013, practices will be taking on the administration of the employer’s NHS superannuation contribution in England, NASGP sought to urgently clarify the situation regarding any change to who will be funding this contribution. 

And we’re relieved to hear that the news from Department of Health is not as bad as first anticipated:

I can confirm that it is also proposed that the funding for Locum GP employer contributions that is currently held by Primary Care Trusts, will transfer to GP Practice ‘Global Sums’ with effect from April next year.
