Update for practices in NHSPS and CHP premises
Email from Dr Krishna Kasaraneni, GPC Executive
I am writing to you about the ongoing issues with NHS Property Services (NHS PS) and Community Health Partnerships (CHP). We are aware that a written question was submitted to the Secretary of State (SoS) about money owed to NHSPS and CHP by GPs, and that this has now been covered by Pulse.
We are writing to reiterate to LMCs and practices our previous guidance on this issue. In respect of current charges, practices should only make payments to both the extent that they are both satisfied as to the legal basis upon which they are payable and their accuracy.
GPC are aware that this issue is causing practices significant stress, and we would like to reassure you that GPC will stand with you in circumstances where, despite there being no legal basis to do so, NHSPS seek to enforce these charges. To this regard, if NHS PS take action to enforce charges against you please let us know immediately (email email@example.com).
Further guidance and updates are available on our website, please follow this link.
