Practices will not have guaranteed funding for extended hours access


Historically anything delivered in primary care by our local ccg has been sliced. Our approach is that we will evaluate any offering from the ccg and if not viable then we will simply stop doing the work. General practice needs to develop alternative income. I highly suggest that you start to make contact with your local CRN. Research has replaced some other incomes. Great for the patients and more than enough work is available. Private patients by other providers such as spire hospital group is another good one. What we have found is that it means that we don't need to stop doing core bread and butter general practice. We just don't need to do the other stuff! - anonymous salaried!
