Headline

NHS England to fund 22,000 practice staff to support GPs

Comment

More details - By 2024, NHS England expects that a typical network will have five clinical pharmacists (equivalent of one per practice), three social prescribers, three first contact physiotherapists, two physician associates and one community paramedic. - This is across 5 practices with 10k patients each. A drop of additional roles in an overwhelming ocean of unscheduled care.
