GPC England has voted to accept a package of changes and extra investment to the GP contract in England 2020-21

GPC England has negotiated an update to the GP contract 2020/21 - 2023/24. This contract will build on the Primary Care Networks created in 2019 (with additional funding and additional workforce), expand recruitment and retention initiatives for GPs (supported with additional funding), thus reducing workload, while retaining GP and partnership autonomy and ensuring GPs have a leadership role at the centre of primary care. The changes will significantly increase funding into the contract (both core and PCN), the details of which are set out here.

Blog by Dr Sonali Kinra, ICS Lead for GP Retention: 
Let’s build a community of sustainable General Practice

Hi everyone – first some personal news from me. After 10 years of working as General Practitioner in Nottinghamshire, I have now moved my clinical work to London due to a change in personal circumstances. I continue in my role as GP retention lead for the ICS for one day per week which will see me travelling back to Nottingham regularly so if you wish to meet, chat to discuss anything related to GP careers, workforce, retention then please get in touch.

It’s February and the festive season already seems long gone by. Thank you to all of you who continued to work in and out of hours during the holiday season – the workload has been relentless.

In addition to the other winter viruses we are also now facing global emergency due to Coronavirus and there are regular updates on Public Health England (PHE) website as well as on Clarity Teamnet. If you are doctor/nurse/AHP working in Nottinghamshire and not already on Teamnet ask your practice to sign you up or if working as a Locum then submit your application here for approval.
