GPs refuse extended hours22nd November 2007
Plans by the Department of Health to improve patient access to GPs may run into difficulties, as 25% of family doctors have said they do not wish to open for extended hours.
Healthcare Republic's survey of 517 doctors found that over one in four (25.8%) said "nothing would encourage them to open for extended hours".
62.7% of GPs said that they "would only open for extended hours if funded" and 61.8% said they thought their patients did want extended opening times.
