Total funding of £39.9 million has been allocated to general practitioner services in Buckinghamshire between 1 April to 30 September 2021, in addition to £1.1 million from the COVID-19 Capacity Extension Fund. Primary care services have also been able to reclaim expenditures made directly as a result of the pandemic. In Buckinghamshire, so far reimbursements have amounted to a total of just over £0.5 million.

On 14 October we announced a new £250 million Winter Access Fund to patients with urgent care needs to access the appropriate services taking account of their preferences, instead of going to hospital. The allocation for Buckinghamshire is to be determined by NHS England.
