New GMS1 Form

New GMS1 Form

From the 2nd October 2017 practices are required to use the new GMS1 form and you should have now received a base supply of these.

Matt Bailey from the Primary Care Team at Southampton City CCG has created a really useful flow chart which provides information on what practices need to do.  It also provides a list of Read codes that can be entered on to the patients medical record where a declaration has been completed.  We have sought advice from the GPC in relation to coding, they have suggested to code “Holds European Health Insurance Card” and these codes are highlighted on the flow chart. Click here to access this.

In April 2017, £5 million was invested into the global sum to cover work associated with overseas administration changes (new GMS1 form), therefore practices have received funding to undertake this.

The new form refers to patients that are “Ordinarily Resident” with the definition of this meaning they are here for a settled purpose and for over a 3 month period.

Practices are not under any obligation to question patients around this, you simply give them the form to complete and if they provide the information under the declaration then this needs to be sent to NHS Digital.

For Temporary Residents the process and the form have not changed, therefore practices need to continue as before.

On the letter that was sent with the supply of new forms, the following statement was included. 

Should your practice currently ask patients to complete a web based version of the form which they print off and sign before attending the practice, as long as this is updated with the new fields and guidance from the supplementary questions section of the form, you are able to continue with this model.

We have taken this to mean that practices are able to continue to use their own forms as long as these has been updated with the new information, therefore please see below our updated registration forms which reflect the changes
