Retainer Dorctor Scheme FAQ 2016
In terms of the salient points:

  • The current sessional rate in the SFEs will be increased from £59.18 to £76.92 (for between 1 and 4 sessions per week).
  • The bursary that has been available to the retained GP up till now is around £310 annual payment, irrespective of how many sessions they do – this will now increase to £1000 per session, so essentially up to £4000 if they work 4 sessions.

These payments will be available to current GPs on the scheme as well as for new GPs.  The increased funding is available up till 30 June 2019. During this time a review of the retained doctors scheme will take place and NHS E hope to make improvements on the 2016 scheme.
