Map: Whether CCGs have allocated £5 per head of funding

Pulse’s interactive map of which CCGs have allocated £5 per patient of funding to support the unplanned admissions DES

9:40am 29/05/2014: Please note, this originally said whether practices had allocated funding to practices. However, this has been amended to reflect that the data refers to whether CCGs have identified the £5 per patient funding in their budgets, not whether it has been allocated to practices.

Key:

Green marker: CCG that has allocated the full £5 of funding

Red arrow: CCG that has not allocated the full £5 of funding

  • This is not true. West Essex CCG has indeed allocated £5 per patient, but not to GPs. It is controlled by a lead provider. This will benefit some in the area but not all, particularly those who do not use the central hospital in the area.
    Sorry. Has to be anonymous

  • Hi there - thanks for flagging this up. We mistakenly labelled this as whether CCGs have allocated the funding to primary care. This was not accurate - this map details whether CCGs have identified the £5 per head funding: ie, whether they are allocating the £5 per head funding at all.

  • Also incorrect for cumbria as far as i know. I heard money to be used to help with the infrastructure of the enhanced service (vague) and not to be given directly to GPs. Also it is apparently not new money but money taken away from something else.

  • I agree this is not true. Our CCG have not used the £5 per patient to commission services in Primary Care. We have no idea what they intend to spend it on!!! Probably used to balance the books in secondary care. Where has the info come from, yet another misinformed spin!!

  • Also not accurate for South Gloucestershire who have no plans to resource GPs to support the care of older people.
