GPs £20m for sickness cover

1st May 2008

The Health Service Journal reports that over £20 million was paid to GP surgeries in England in 2007 for maternity and sickness cover.

The HSJ asked for information from over 30 Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) under the Freedom of Information Act. 50% refused to release their data. Sixteen complied with the request and showed that over £2.3 million was paid to practices. The HSJ estimated that this indicated the 152 PCTs probably paid in the region of £20m-£25m to GP practices in 2007.
