£105m in practice funding at risk22nd May 2008
Doctors leaders have warned that an extra £105 million in practice income promised by the Department of Health could be lost if the GPC wins its legal challenge against correction factor cuts.
The DH announced that the money, representing a 1.5% increase in primary care funding, would finance five new clinical directed enhanced services (DESs) and increased access to GP practices in England. But GPC chairman Dr Laurence Buckman said that this money could be in jeopardy as the GPC fights against the recent pay recommendations made by the Doctors’ and Dentists’ Review Body.
