Merry Christmas to all our greedy GPs 🎅

Increase in pay rates for GPs and pharmacies administering the experimental Covid-19 injections.

GP’s and pharmacies now to be offered the increased pay rate of £15 for each Covid injection administered (until the end of January) with an extra £5 for Sunday jabs and an extra £15 for jabs given to the housebound.

“Speaking at a Downing Street press conference, Amanda Pritchard, chief executive of NHS England, said GPs and pharmacies would be offered £15 for every shot administered from Mondays to Saturday until the end of January, compared to just £12.58 previously.

A £5 bonus would be offered for jabs given on a Sunday and a £30 premium for shots delivered to the housebound, Ms Pritchard said.

“Our hard-working GPs, community pharmacists and primary care colleagues have delivered the lion’s share of the vaccinations so far,” she added. “We’re looking at how we can help them to do even more by cutting other burdens on them to free up clinicians’ time.”

The increased fees come as the Government unveils targets to offer all adults a booster shot by the end of January.

“We are going to throw everything at it, to ensure that everyone eligible for that booster will be vaccinated within two months,” the Prime Minister said. “It’s time for another Great British vaccination effort.”

He added that temporary vaccination centres would be “popping up like Christmas trees” while the military, pharmacies, hospitals and GP practices would all be deployed in an attempt to hit the vaccination rate seen earlier this year”
