PCTs will not hit polyclinics deadline

12th November 2008

Primary Care Trusts are falling behind schedule in meeting targets for the roll-out of GP-led health centres.

Department of Health figures show that 20 trusts will not have their centres open by the deadline of April 2009. Statistics for October show that 17% of PCTs (20 of 118) are off course. Four estimate their centres will not be operational until December 2009 while a further five say they are unlikely to be ready by next October. The figures do not include London PCTs, which now have until 2010 to open polyclinics.
