General Practitioners: Enfield

Volume 472: debated on Monday 3 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many patients were seen by out of hours GP services in (a) Enfield and (b) Enfield North in each of the last 10 years. (190174)

Information on the number of patients seen by out of hours general practitioner (GP) services is not collected centrally. Primary care trusts (PCTs) now have a legal responsibility to ensure that they provide or secure provision of out of hours services for their local population. The right hon. Member may therefore wish to approach the Chief Executive of Enfield PCT who might be able to provide data on the number of patients seen by local out of hours GP services.

The NHS London Strategic Health Authority reports that Enfield PCT is in the process of trying to agree extended opening hours with all its practices.
