This Code of Practice sets out the Scottish Government’s plan to facilitate the shift to a model which does not entail GPs providing their practice premises.

Executive Summary

This Code of Practice sets out the Scottish Government’s plan to facilitate the shift to a model which does not entail GPs providing their practice premises. The Code sets out:

• how the Scottish Government and Health Boards will enable the transition over a 25 year period to a model where GP contractors no longer own their premises;

• how the Scottish Government and Health Boards will support GPs who own their premises during the

transition to the new model through the provision of interest-free secured loans; and

• the actions that GP contractors who no longer wish to lease their premises from private landlords

must take to allow Health Boards to take on that responsibility.
