DoH figures for November show 65% of England’s 8,263 practices are now open at evenings and weekends, compared with 59% in October.
Western Cheshire PCT is the only PCT with no practices offering the service, but that is because its local arrangement with
GPs is not recognised by the DoH.
Over 85% of PCTs have now met the DoH’s target of having half of its practices offering extended hours.
