Prime Minister's Challenge Fund Bid

This morning, the practice has received a letter informing us that unfortunately we were unsuccessful in our bid for funds to extend our service to our patients as part of the PM's Challenge Fund.

There were over 250 expressions of interest, demonstrating a variety of options for improving and extending access to general practice, but we were thanked for "all the hard work and time that has gone into our application. All practices will have the chance to benefit from guidance being developed through the Challenge Fund programme including: work to help further reduce bureaucracy and identify new ways of shaping demand on general practice services and working at a greater scale in networks and federations. We are also exploring the potential to create some kind of innovation hub to share great ideas across the general practice communities".

So all in all it was worth having a go, but we must not be disappointed - we already provide a fantastic service compared to some other parts of the country, and if it helps them to raise their standards, then it will be money well spent.
