Average funding per patient across all GP practices in England has risen steadily since the first data on payments to general practice - for the 2013/14 financial year - were published by NHS Digital.
Data published this week revealed that average funding per patient for GP practices was £151 for 2016/17 - up from £136.01 in 2013/14. But variation in the average level of funding GP practices receive between CCG areas remains huge, and was roughly unchanged in 2016/17 compared with the previous year.
In NHS Central Manchester CCG, practices received £115.54 on average per weighted patient in 2016/17 - the lowest average figure in the country. In NHS North Norfolk CCG, however, practices receive £216.72 - almost twice as much per weighted patient.

Variation in GP funding between the best- and worst-funded CCG areas in 2016/17 is lower than it was in 2014/15, NHS Digital's data reveal. In 2014/15, GP practices in the best-funded CCG area received around £215 per weighted patient, compared with £105.19 in the worst-funded area.
But compared with 2015/16, when the range was around £110 to £210, very little changed in 2016/17.
GP leaders have warned that despite a rise in GP funding in 2016/17, overall investment in general practice is failing to keep track with soaring workload.
The BMA has predicted that general practice funding will fall short by £3.4bn in 2020/21 of the 11% share of overall NHS funding the profession needs.
