Provision of information on general practice access data

The government’s mandate to NHS England includes a commitment to ensure everyone has easier and more convenient access to GP services, including appointments at evening and weekends.

From October 2016 every GP practice in England will be required to submit an online return twice a year through the Primary Care Web Tool. Guidance has now been published on completing the return, which must set out what access to appointments the practice offers to patients either itself or through other arrangements, seven days a week. The first return will be open for submission from 3 October 2016 to 31 October 2016
