The decade-long decline in the proportion of the NHS budget spent on GP surgeries has been highlighted in a parliamentary written answer.

In 2005-06, the NHS spent 10.4% of its total budget on general practice, but in 2014-15 the proportion was down to 8.1%. However, the amount spent on general practice has increased 16.2% in that time, rising from £7.747 billion in 2005-06 to £9.001 billion in 2014-15.

The figures were given in answer to a written question from Tewkesbury MP Laurence Robertson. In the answer, health minister Alistair Burt said the figures were “taken from the Health and Social Care Information Centre’s Investment in General Practice reports, which is the most comprehensive source of data on investment in general practice. The NHS Revenue Expenditure data is taken from the Department’s accounts.”

Spending figures per year given in the written answer were as follows:
