Ms Robison told the RCGP annual conference in Glasgow: ‘This commitment to the transformation of primary care comes with a commitment to invest. In Scotland we spend £12bn a year on our health service. Of that, £770m is spent on general practice. In addition, we recently announced a further £60m primary care transformation fund.’
The government is also in the midst of discussing a further £2.5m to boost GP recruitment and retention in Scotland, especially to improve recruitment to rural and deprived areas.
