Improving access to general practice

More needs to be done to improve access to general practice, says the National Audit Office.

In a new report it acknowledges the efforts made by the Department of Health and NHS England but argues for a more coordinated approach and stronger incentives. The NAO also says that not enough is being done to ensure that existing services are value for money, which means that additional funding earmarked for better access is being wasted.
