Occupational health funding for GPs to be cut

January 7, 2014 9:54 am

NHS England’s review of occupational health services for GPs, formerly provided by PCTs in England, is to conclude that GPs will only be able to receive funding for occupational health services if concerns have been raised over their performance or if the GP requires an additional assessment when registering for the first time on the national performers list. In addition, GPs as employers will also be asked to provide occupational health services for practice staff.

Pete for PSI: GP representative groups have unsurprisingly reacted negatively to this move, and this will only add fuel to their argument that GPs are being unfairly treated by NHS England and the Department of Health, following moves throughout 2013 to move the pressure facing A&E departments into primary care
