Surgeries to open 12 hours a day...

iStock 000003377392XSmallAt the 2013 Conservatory Party Conference David Cameron announces plans for a £50 million trial to extended UK GP surgery opening hours.



Following on from a recent announcement the £50 million plan is for doctors surgeries to open from 8am until 8pm seven days a week. Up to half a million patients are expected to be covered by a pilot project in areas across England as the government seeks to improve access and cut the pressure on stretched A&E departments. Almost one in five patient in a resent NHS survey said inconvenient appointments were a concern, with more than 70% backing weekend and after hours opening. Patients will also be given the opportunity to speak to their doctor by Skype.
