To ask the Scottish Government what progress is being made with its proposed GP sustainability loans, and whether all GP premises will be surveyed in 2018-19 to provide the information required for their maintenance or improvement.
Answered by: Shona Robison 26 April 2018
Progress is being made on the implementation of the GP Premises Sustainability Loan Scheme. Eligible GP practices will shortly be asked to provide a note of their interest in applying for a GP Sustainability Loan and will be informed of the categories for priority applications.
All GP premises owned or leased by GPs will be surveyed in 2018-19. This will provide the data which Health Boards will require for their premises plans. GPs will remain responsible for maintaining and improving their own premises.
