NHS England advises that, of the 37 schemes selected for the second wave of Access Fund pilot schemes, one of these is based in Coventry. This scheme involves 64 general practitioner practices in the local area.

In October 2013, the Prime Minister announced a new £50 million Access Fund to help improve access to general practice and stimulate innovative ways of providing primary care services. The first wave of 20 pilots was announced in April 2014.

Further funding of £100 million was announced by the Prime Minister on 30 September 2014 for a second wave of schemes and an additional £25 million has since been added from the £1 billion Infrastructure Fund.
