The Local NHS Health Commissioner (Barking & Dagenham CCG ) has notified the Practice that with effect from the 1st October 2018, there will be a significant cut to the funding of General Practice services.
This reduction applies to local Practices holding a PMS (Personal Medical Services contract) of which your Practice is one.
We will be having our funding cut over a 2-3 year period. This is a very significant reduction, which we believe will have an impact on the services we can provide to you. We may not be able to offer the same level of service that you have previously experienced.
We are currently exploring options they may be of help to patient access in the form of e-consult, an online GP service.
We will endeavour to keep you updated as things develop over the coming months.
