GPs receive funding boost to vaccinate housebound

​The NHS will pay GPs an additional £10 for every COVID vaccination they deliver to someone who is housebound as part of the drive to protect the most vulnerable people as swiftly as possible.

The extra payment comes as Vaccine Centres including Elland Road football ground, home to Premier League side Leeds, prepare to open their doors as the NHS Vaccination programme, the biggest in health service history, continues to accelerate this week.

The openings will mean there are more than 100 of the large-scale centres offering the life-saving jab, along with more than local 1,000 GP services, almost 200 run by High Street pharmacy services and over 250 hospital hubs.

People aged 70 and over can arrange to be jabbed at a Vaccine Centre or pharmacy service or wait to be contacted by their local GP service or hospital. GPs are also visiting those who cannot leave home to ensure that they are also protected.

They will receive an additional £10 on top of the standard vaccination fee for all every housebound person they vaccinate. Some GP services working in towns and cities have been vaccinating more than 100 people with conditions such as dementia, each day. The additional funding recognises the extra staff time and complexity of vaccinating the housebound, and also applies retrospectively to any vaccinations which have already been administered to people at home.
