Update to the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) 2024

Attention GP Practices & Primary Care Networks:

As you know, NHS England's Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) was launched in 2019 to support the recruitment of essential roles within general practice. Entitling PCN's access to funding to support recruitment across the specific reimbursable roles:

  • Clinical Pharmacists
  • Social Prescribing link workers
  • Physician Associates
  • Paramedics
  • First Contact Physiotherapists
  • Pharmacy Technicians
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Dietitians
  • Chiropodists / Podiatrists
  • Mental Health Practitioners


Here's what's new:

On September 28th, 2024, NHS England announced an expansion of the ARRS scheme.

With plans to give Primary Care Networks (PCNs) more staffing flexibility by including 'enhanced nurses' in the Additional Role Reimbursement Scheme.

This means you can now claim reimbursement for qualified Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) salaries.
