Increase in GP premises costs likely

Pulse reports that NHS Property Services (PS) has announced plans to ensure that all costs it needs to recover come from tenants and not from CCGs. PS said it is now unable to recover about 40% of its costs from its tenants and would work to make sure these will not come from CCGs. It is likely this will lead to significant increases in costs for GP practices, although  PS stated that commissioners will continue to subsidise some GPs’ bills.
