In 2015, NHS England committed to invest £10m to support vulnerable practices. This funding was designed to get the most at risk practices back from the brink of closure. When the programme was launched a letter was produced which outlined how the funding would be allocated and how local decisions about support were to be approached.
This scheme has now closed, however the GP Resilience Programme now providing support to practices in order to build resilience.
