The Scottish Government is committed to increasing spending on primary care services to 11% of the frontline NHS budget by 2021-22. The breakdown of spending on General Practice (Primary Medical Services) for 2017-18 and subsequent years will be agreed as part of the Spending Review and Budget Bill processes for those years, which will be subject to approval by the Scottish Parliament.
