PSNC Briefing 038/15: PSNC Update on negotiations on a national Minor Ailments Advice Service (July 2015)

PSNC had hoped that it would be able to reach agreement with the NHS on such a service as part of the 2015/16 settlement and in lengthy discussions with the NHS we had developed a detailed proposal for this. NHS England subsequently decided not to pursue this. This has been very disappointing and PSNC believes it will have a negative impact on both the NHS and patients, who are missing out on a valuable professional service that could both improve care and reduce pressures on GP practices and the wider health service.

The following briefing contains a more detailed update on negotiations on a national Minor Ailments Advice Service.
