Focus on premises costs

On 1 April 2004, the National Health Service (General Medical Services – Premises Costs) (England) Directions 2004 replaced the sections of the Statement of Fees and Allowances (SFAs) relating to practice premises costs. 

This guidance note gives GPs, practice staff and Local Medical Committees (LMCs) an overview and explanation of these Directions.

Readers are strongly advised also to refer to the Directions themselves when investigating specific issues, as this note does not replicate the Directions in full.
