NHS England 'ahead of target' on GP funding rise plans with £580m boost NHS England is 'ahead of target' to increase GP funding, it has claimed, amid an annual rise last year of £580m.
Official data released today showed that GP funding increased by 3.9% last year, rising to a total of £10.8bn in 2017/18.
NHS England said this marked the fifth annual consecutive real-terms increase to general practice funding and put it 'ahead of target' on its GP Forward View pledge for general practice to receive £12bn a year by 2020.
But the BMA said the figure was 'potentially misleading' because it included funding for drug reimbursements and other initiatives like GP services in A&E. Pulse
