Help for GP PracticesIndustry News
On 28th July 2016, NHS England's board agreed a package of immediate actions which included the release of the first 16m of a new 40m General Practice Resilience Programme.
The aim is to assist the practices worst affected by rising patient demand. Practical help will be offered to stabilise practices including access to specialist IT, HR, staffing and practice management advice.
It won't only be struggling GP surgeries that will benefit from the General Practice Resilience Programme, as every UK practice countrywide will be given the opportunity to receive development support. National expertise & resources will be available for ALL practices to receive workshops, agree action plans and to introduce new technologies.
There will also be new funding available to fully offset the rising cost of GP indemnity and wider plans to reform indemnity arrangements.
Dr Arvind Madan, NHS Director of Primary Care, said:
'Three months on from the launch of the General Practice Forward View, we're now getting on with implementing these plans.' 'We understand the pressure on GP practices and today's announcement shows how we're getting on with immediate practical steps to deliver GPs much-needed support'
We're sure that the positive impact of these changes will be felt very quickly.
