PCN - Funding
In addition to the workforce costs (for the additional workforce and the clinical director) each network will receive a recurrent annual payment of £1.50 per patient (an extension of the current CCG funding, but now non-discretionary) to be used by the network practices to support their work.
Front-loaded additional funding, ring-fenced for networks, will be available from central allocations (in addition to some of the current funding for GPFV and CCG funding).
A new Network Investment and Impact Fund will be introduced from 2020, providing funding for networks successful in reducing the burden on secondary care, in a controlled and agreed manner and which could be used by the Network to develop more sustainable community based services.
Each participating practice will also receive funding from the Network Participation Payment. This paid to individual practices not the PCN and it is up to the practice to decide what to do with this funding.
