The Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) was introduced in England in 2019 as a key part of the Government’s plan to improve access to General practice for patients, with the aim of the ARRS scheme to try to build the necessary additional roles within Primary Care in order to solve the workforce shortage within general practice i.e. to support the recruitment of 26,000 additional staff into the sector !
