LCS: Re-implementation Guidance and Q2 Payments

For quarter two, locally commissioned services (LCS) will be paid pro rata, by quarter, based on practice achievement in 2019-20. Over this period practices may feel able to restart LCS activity safely for the benefit of their patients. This approach to payment is to support income guarantee during this period. In effect this is a block arrangement; submissions of activity data will not be required from practices.

The Islington LCS portfolio has been reviewed to assess the changes that are required due to the new Covid working practices. The full service specifications offer detailed descriptions of the actions that would normally be required; however guidance has been produced outlining the necessary changes to some components that will enable practices, where they are restarting LCS activity, to deliver these LCSs under the current constraints.

Expiry date: Aug 4th, 2021
