Seniority payments are being phased out. The seniority scheme will end completely on 31 March 2020.During the six year phasing out period, those who were in receipt of seniority on 31 March 2014 will continue to receive payments. GPs not already in receipt of seniority on 31 March 2014 will generally not be eligible1. Each year the seniority payment scales in the Statement of Financial Entitlements will change to require an additional year’s reckonable service before qualifying for payment. The current qualifying arrangements will continue for those in receipt of payments. All funding released from the seniority pot will be reinvested in core funding for general practicethrough an annual increase to the global sum with no out of hours deduction applied.This focus on document will guide you through the phasing out process
