Exclusive: Lansley to end extended hours 'madness' for GPs

GP newspaper's Tom Ireland met health secretary Andrew Lansley at Richmond House for an exclusive interview to find out what impact the White Paper and commissioning plans will have on the future of GPs. In a short clip from our interview, Mr Lansley sets out why he thinks Labour was 'mad' to force GPs to open extended hours.

In the full video interview, available from Thursday 7 October from 10am, Mr Lansley explains his vision for general practice in the coming years, free from the 'absurd' micromanagement of the previous government.

Mr Lansley also discusses GP commissioning, revalidation, NICE and the role of the private sector in commissioning.
