Sixth GP joins Darzi's review

Health minister Lord Ara Darzi has appointed a sixth GP to his review team to look at extending practice opening hours.

Dr James Kingsland, National Association of Primary Care chairman, will serve alongside BMA council member Dr Sam Everington, NHS Alliance chairman Dr Michael Dixon, outgoing RCGP chairman Professor Mayur Lakhani, former head of the Improvement Foundation Dr John Oldham and Dr David Colin-Thome, the DoH's national clinical director for primary care.

Darzi's interim recommendations included 250 new surgeries. The final review will be published in June 2008.
