Appraisal payments

Following the BMA GPs Committee submission to the DDRB, and the recommendation of a 3% uplift for GP appraiser pay and trainers grants being accepted by government, NHSE/I has confirmed the standard appraisal fee will be uplifted by 3% and applied from 1 April 2021. 

It is anticipated that the September 2021 payment will reflect the new recalculated fee and include back payments for appraisals undertaken and paid. It is positive that the award has been applied to this area as GP appraisers had been severely affected during the pandemic, with many appraisals being paused.
