Network Contract DES

Ardens has developed a number of resources to support practices achieving the Network Contract DES requirements for 2021/22. For further information on this, please click here.

Disclaimer: The Ardens National Contract Reports (including QOF, NCD, SMI, NHS HC) are to be used purely as an indicative guide for practices for practical purposes. They are not intended to replace the national reports. Whilst they are based on the business rules, they do not accurately reflect every rule.


A number of NCD indicators also use data from other sources that are not available via the SystmOne reports. Specific examples include:

  • NCD012 - Data from manual submissions by PCNs via CQRS
  • NCD013 - Data from GP Appointment Data


Management Information - The Network DES business rules include a number of "Management Information" indicators (prefixed with NCDMI). These are not linked to payment but we understand that this activity data may be auto-extracted via GPES. We have included reports based on these rules so that practices are aware of what data may be extracted.


For full details on the available Ardens resources to Network Contract DES, please see the following support article.


To access the reports, navigate to this folder 'Reporting > Clinical Reporting > Ardens Ltd > Contracts I 2021 22 I NCD PCN DES folder'.
