A £250 million access revenue fund was secured for the national health service through the comprehensive spending review process to support the delivery of general practitioner (GP) health centres in every primary care trust (PCT) and over a 100 new GP practices in the most poorly served PCTs. In all, £120 million per annum has been allocated to PCTs for new GP health centres and this has been included using a weighted capitation formula to determine each PCTs fair share of resources.

No specific capital funding has been allocated for the development of GP health centres. Where capital investment is required to support the development of new GP facilities, PCTs can use the funds available to them for local capital investment priorities.
