Doncaster's worst GP surgeries have been revealed.

East Riding residents are being given the chance to have their say on plans to improve access to GP services in the region by making more appointments available outside of normal GP practice opening hours.

NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is looking to use funding from NHS England to offer additional appointments from 2019 and is running a survey to help shape what this may look like.

Gina Palumbo, local GP and clinical chair of the CCG said: “Some GP practices in East Riding of Yorkshire currently provide a limited service outside of standard opening hours but we want to extend this.”

You can complete the CCG’s survey online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ERYextendedaccess.

Printed copies will be available at GP practices or by contacting the CCG to request a copy on 01482 672156.
