Additional Roles in the multi professional General Practice team
To support Primary Care Networks (PCNs), the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) provides funding for additional roles to create bespoke multi-disciplinary teams. PCNs assess the needs of their local population and, working with local health services, make support available to people where it is most needed.
Cornwall Primary Care Training Hub supports General Practice in identifying opportunities for introducing, supporting and embedding the GP contract “new roles” into primary care settings linked to the scheme, in addition to developing career frameworks for all practice roles.
When using ARRS funding, there are a number of restrictions and considerations such as minimum of contracted hours working in PCN, salary scale and training requirements. Due to periodic changes in the funding model, the most up-to-date information must be sourced so please contact the Training Hub.
Links and resources on the different roles in General Practice can be found below and further information can also be found via the E learning for health pages.
NHS East of England has produced a great series of videos describing the additional roles. These can be viewed on YouTube.
If you have any questions about the roles listed, please contact the Training Hub.
