Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme

The aim of the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) is to provide funding for 26,000 additional roles within Primary Care Networks (PCNs), to create bespoke multi-disciplinary teams.

The new roles which are currently funded via the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme are as follows:

  • Care Coordinator
  • Clinical Pharmacist
  • Pharmacy Technician
  • Dietitian
  • First Contact Physiotherapist
  • Health and Wellbeing Coach
  • Mental Health Practitioner
