So the GP contact for 24/25 has been released, below are the main take aways;

The total increase in funding for general practice in England will be 2.23% next year – an increase in investment of £259m taking overall contract investment to £1,186m.

NHS England have given the following breakdown of how it has calculated the £259m funding increase:

2% pay increase for all GPs and practice staff – which it said could increase once the DDRB has given its recommendations.
2% uplift to the ARRS.
1.68% inflation – which it claims is in line with the Government’s November 2023 GDP deflator.
0.38% ONS population growth.

We would love to know your thoughts on what this means for the future of Primary Care. Do you think the contract could be improved in any way?
