More deprived PCTs have below average GP population

Nearly two-thirds of deprived PCTs (37 of 61) were more than 10 per cent below the England average level for the number of full-time-equivalent GPs per 100,000 weighted population in September 2005, according to the DoH.

The figure is an increase from 29 out of 61 PCTs in September 2002.

The shift has happened because there have been improvements in the number of full-time equivalent GPs in England in all PCTs.
