Invest £250m in premises or forget shifting care to GPs, GPC to tell NHS England


I'm confused about GP premises funding. NHS Property Services were gifted the entire estate assets of the PCTs - but aren't most GP surgeries financed by loans taken out by GPs and serviced by notional (or cost) rent? Who is responsible for Notional/Cost Rent - especially when there is a discussion about developing new premises? (NHS PS seem to have needed rescuing - but FT article behind paywall! Pulse, is this true and if so what are the implications for general practice?)
