Department of Health draft guidelines indicate it is unlikely there will be a national tariff for medical placements in GP practices in England in 2015-16.

However, the draft guidelines on educational and training tariffs for 2015-16 say that work is ongoing to develop medical education and training tariffs for placements in GP practices.

The DoH is “working with a group of experts in general practice education and training to collect information about the costs of providing placement in GP practices,” it says. “We anticipate that these tariffs will distinguish between delivering different types of placements, for example, for medical students, foundation trainees and specialty registrars.”

The guidelines cover non-medical placements in primary care, for example, nurse training placements in GP practices, as well as medical undergraduate and postgraduate placements in secondary care.

However, section 9 of the guidelines notes that there is no national tariff for undergraduate medical placements in GP practices. This means the price paid “varies across the country, creating inequalities. The introduction of a national tariff will address this and create a fair playing field.”

While it is still working on developing a national tariff for GP practices, “providers will continue to be funded using existing arrangements.”
