NHS England – Management of GMS Contracts:

NHS England has a range of policies and procedures relating to the administration of GMS Contracts. These policies provide guidance on the day-to-day management of GMS Contracts, which the local area team should adhere to. The GMS Contract is nationally negotiated and agreed, and therefore not subject to local variation. However, these policies would apply to the application of contract sanctions.

A link to the full range of policies can be found in the left-hand side-bar, under the section Operational Policies – NHS England
