General practices have remained open throughout the pandemic, offering face to face appointments to those who need them as well as telephone and online consultations.

In July 2021 nearly 60% of general practitioner (GP) appointments were face to face.

We have made available an additional £270 million from November 2020 until September 2021 to ensure GPs and their teams are able to continue to support all patients. Between April to September 2021, £3,164,000 was allocated to South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Sustainability and Transformation Partnership to support GP practices across South Yorkshire.
