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

Comment

£250M is no where near enough to address the backlog in premises deficiencies built up by chronic underfunding , yet alone for the enhancements and expansion needed to facilitate Community Services and reduction in hospital use. ( For an expanding older population with LTCs ). Practices at risk of CQC closure through no fault of their own. The issues relating to who pays the rent for non GMS space is problematic . Let us hope Parking Charges are not introduced , as per hospitals , to fund this !
