Evening and weekend GP appointments rolled out across England, NHS announces Evening and weekend GP appointments have now been rolled out across England, health bosses have announced.
NHS England said that an estimated nine million extra appointments per year are now available to patients outside of normal working hours.
The extended access available from today means people will be able to see a doctor, nurse or other member of a practice team during evenings and weekends.
NHS England said the service has arrived three months ahead of schedule and will help ease pressure on the health service during the winter period. The Daily Telegraph
