NHS England is inviting a second wave of bids from GPs for a share of the £100 million Prime Minister’s Challenge Fund.

The Fund has been set up “to improve and extend access to GP services for patients.” NHS England says that over 7 million patients across England will benefit from the first wave of 20 pilot schemes which covers over 1,100 GP practices.

This latest round of bids is open until January 16 2015. Bids should feature innovative ways to serve populations of at least 30,000 patients.

To help practices develop proposals, NHS England will be running a series of webinars which will include a presentation from Dr Robert Varnam, Head of General Practice Development, and an open Q&A time.

“This is an opportunity to share lessons learnt from Wave 1 which will help inform GP Wave 2 pilot applications,” says NHS England.

The webinars are scheduled for:

•    11 November – 19:00-20:00
•    19 November – 10:00-11:00
•    9 December – 16:00-17:00
•    17 December – 09:00-10:00

Bid application forms can be downloaded from the NHS England website.
