|GG&C LDC Political Update
Many thanks to all of you who passed on your examples of the struggles you are still facing in practice. We have passed these on to your national representatives who are able to bring your concerns to the attention of the CDO and the Minister.
We can now advise that Scottish Government have confirmed that Covid FSM payments will remain in place until March 2022.
We do not yet know whether activity measurement will have some part to play. However, the prospect of SG introducing tiered support payments dependent on % Item of Service still looms. We will continue to make the case that this approach disadvantages children and takes little stock of the additional non-clinical activity that takes place compared to pre-pandemic times.
Unfortunately we have still not had any news of interim or longterm models of care. We continue to ask for meaningful dialogue with the profession from SG and the CDO.
