General Practitioners: Working Hours

Volume 462: debated on Thursday 28 June 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster pursuant to the answer of 6 June 2007, Official Report, column 652W, on general practitioners: working hours, (1) what work the Delivery Unit has done on out-of-hours care since 2001; (144494)

(2) whether the Unit has conducted a joint review of out-of-hours care since 2001.

The Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit’s (PMDU) role is to monitor and report on delivery of the Prime Minister’s top delivery and reform priorities. Out-of-hours care is not one of the areas on which PMDU’s health team has worked, and PMDU has not conducted a joint review on it since 2001.
