NHS England published the General Practice Forward View (GPFV) on 21 April 2016, setting out a programme of support for general practice over the next five years.
April 2017 marks the end of the first year that the GPFV has been in place. Here we look at what was promised in the first year of the GPFV and what has been delivered so far.
This guidance summarises some of the key potential opportunities for general practice from the Forward View, and provides a steer for LMCs and practices on maximising its potential to deliver change locally.
NHS England has committed to invest a further £2.4bn a year by 2020/21 into general practice services, meaning a rise in investment from £9.6 billion a year in 2015/16 to over £12 billion a year by 2020/21.
The following funding and support schemes are available to help stabilise and improve the primary care workforce through the training and recruitment of GPs and investment in staff.
The GPFV aims to support general practice with the management of demand, diversion of unnecessary work and more integration with the wider health and care system.
The GPFV has committed to developing general practice estates and infrastructure and investing in better technology through the following funding and support schemes.
