COVID-19 general practice support fund

The Government described the intention to create a COVID-19 general practice support fund to assist with the legitimate additional costs of the response borne by GP practices.

Guidance has been published setting out how practices can claim for:

  • Specific and net additional costs incurred for bank holiday opening
  • Additional net costs incurred in delivering additional services to care homes
  • COVID-19 related absence cover
  • Additional capacity where supported by the commissioner
  • Costs incurred as a result of purchasing other consumables required as a result of COVID-19.
