SPPC Fund 2022

2022 Schemes 

The £3.8 million Strategic Programme for Primary Care Fund (SPPC Fund) commenced in April 2022. The SPPC Fund replaces the Pacesetter/Pathfinder funding stream that was available to Health Boards across Wales from 2015-2022. 

The SFFC Fund will be used by Health Boards to support the implementation of the Accelerated Cluster Development Programme and investment into primary care schemes to address Obesity, aligned with the Healthy Weight Healthy Wales Strategy. These two investment areas: ACD and Obesity, were agreed by the Directors of Primary Care Peer Group and endorsed by the National Primary Care Board.

In February 2022, the National Primary Care Board endorsed a suite of 17 schemes: 7 ACD programme schemes and 10 schemes to address Obesity.  An overview of the schemes and links to the summary scheme information is contained in the table below. 

An Action Learning Group will be established to support problem solving and sharing of information for both the ACD programme and Obesity schemes.

Mid and end point monitoring and benefits realisation reports will be produced over the 2022/2024 period and reported through to the National Primary Care Board.

For more information on any of the schemes please contact the Strategic Programme Primary Care SPPC@wales.nhs.uk.
