General Practitioners: Bexley

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many GP practices in the London borough of Bexley had extended opening hours in (a) 1997 and (b) 2009. (310694)

Data were not collected in 1997 on number of general practitioner (GP) practices offering extended opening. Information last collected in July 2009 showed that 18 of the 29 GP practices in Bexley care trust (62.1 per cent.) had extended opening hours, offering their patients access to routine appointments. We expect this to continue to increase.
