All practices in England to be invited to bid for £1bn premises funding


"The Government has said that the funding will be used for practices to offer new services, such as dialysis and chemotherapy, " In other words it is not to help update or replace the out of date premises, but only if youget new hospital services in, and as we have tried and tried but failed to get the community trust and hospital trust to join us in a new project, it is mostly doomed to failure. Except.... that the hospitals who are now allowed to open GP surgeries will be able to put in a bid integrating their services, thus squeezing out existing GPs from this funding. It's another poisoned chalice for general practice dressed up as great propaganda for the government
