GPC Focus on funding and support for general practice
GPC welcomes any funding or support for General Practice but recognises that it is incredibly difficult to keep track of what is available and how the different pots of money relate to one another. We are also concerned that often the time between announcement of funds and the closing date for applications is very tight, leaving practices very little time to plan and submit their bid.
This Guide is intended to be a reference tool for practices. We would encourage you to make the time to read it in order to identify which options might be right for your practice, you canthen begin to plan your applications.
Set out in sections, the guide aims to summarise:
–– the different funding streams currently (or soon to be) available
–– what they can (and cannot) be used for
–– relevant criteria to be met
–– where to find more information
We will add to and update this guide to reflect any new information released by NHS England and add any new sources of funding/support.
GPC would like to acknowledge the work of the Humberside Group of Local Medical Committees in the development of this guidance document
