star this property answer text <p>Under the current legislative framework, continence products are supplied by pharmaceutical services providers, including pharmacists, dispensing appliance contractors and dispensing doctors in response to a National Health Service prescription. Part IX of the Drug Tariff sets out the products that general practitioners can prescribe on an NHS prescription in primary care. If there are local arrangements outside of these national arrangements, it would be for local commissioners as part of their commissioning process to assess the suitability of these arrangements.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The requested information is contained in the attached tables. When interpreting the figures, it is important to note that the nature of general practitioner (GP) contracts and their work has changed over time. Since the start of the new General Medical Services (GMS) contract in 2004-05, there have been some major changes to income, work streams and investment in general practice which is not directly comparable to previous years. The time series tables are presented in cash terms for contractor and salaried GPs under a GMS or Personal Medical Service (PMS) contract. The data covers earnings, expenses and income from both National Health Service and private sources where a GP has at least some NHS earnings.</p> more like this
