NHS England has announced a range of improvements to its GP retainer scheme, including increased funding for GPs and practices. The scheme provides financial incentives and development support to encourage GPs who might otherwise leave the profession to remain in general practice.

NHS England said that, from 1 July 2016, it would increase the money for practices employing a retained GP and the annual payment towards professional expenses for GPs in the scheme.
