Premises webinars

22 August 2017

Contract managers and contract holders need to understand the rules that underpin financial support for premises from which primary care medical services are delivered.

Understanding the impact of rent reviews and abatements is vitally important if contract holders are to manage their estate and make good business decisions in line with the wider primary care and integrated services strategies.

PCC is hosting webinars covering the process of rent reviews for owner occupiers (notional rent) and lease holders, outlining the process and some of the issues that may arise, with separate sessions on the improvement grant process and abatement rules including abatement for third party occupiers and for non GMS core services. The webinars, hosted by PCC expert Bill May, are on 19 September and 26 September.

Webinars are only open to NHS England local offices and clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) with a current PCC subscription.
