Pulse: NHS England advises GP practices not to furlough staff

May 4, 2020

An article published on the Pulsetoday.co.uk website reports advice from NHS England that GP practices should not use the government scheme to furlough staff. Deborah Wood, AISMA vice-chairman, talking to Pulse, said: “I am anticipating that NHS England / Improvement will recognise that there is an issue regarding additional costs for cover with regard to self-isolation and shielding, and will deal with this by way of additional reimbursement funding.

“Practices should therefore discuss this with their CCGs, and only consider the furlough scheme for staff who are funded from private income sources that have temporarily ceased.”
