Helping GPs to meet the expectations from NHS England for general practice to adopt an online consultation tool in 2017.
In 2017 NHS England is making an additional £45million available over the course of three years to CCGs to invest in online consultation tools for patient access within their respective catchments. This funding has been ring-fenced and is due for release from April 2017.
This means that successful general practices will stand to benefit from a cash injection that could help them fund the total cost for implementing an online consultation system, and help them meet the transformation goals for 2017 as outlined by NHS England.
