Every CCG to get £6 per patient to extend GP access from 2019

A quick top level analysis is that this is extra funding for new work. More detail is required to show if this will simply mean spreading the current level of appointments over a longer period or new appointments. If new effort is meant I am ambivalent, just wondering where the extra clinicians are to come from. My concern is that at a time when primary care is dying on it's feet this does absolutely nothing to address the core problem, more about spending to deliver a manifesto commitment
