Revised exit guidance has been published and is available here
Ensuring your practice meets its contract expectations is essential to the financial stability and wellbeing of the practice. It is very important therefore that you review the reports that are generated by NHS BSA every month to help you monitor performance in regard to the two measures; capitation and activity and take action where necessary to manage deviation.
Where to find the reports to manage your prototype
With effect from August 2016, the monthly reports reflecting your contract’s performance are available on Compass. Guidance on how to access your reports can be viewed here
Performer level reports
The following reports are available directly to performers via their Compass login, and contain individual achievement to date:
