answer text <p>The time between booking an appointment with a general practice and having the appointment (in days) for the practices where data is currently collected in Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group is presented in the following table for the last available published date, February 2019. A 12- month average from March 2018-February 2019 has also been presented along with a comparison to the average across all appointments in England. NHS Digital’s ‘Appointments in General Practice’ data is published monthly with a two-month time lag.</p><p>The appointments data does not differentiate between emergency and routine appointments in general practice and the ‘time from booking to appointment’ does not take into consideration that many patients will be appropriately booking ahead as part of the continuity of care they receive for long-term conditions.</p><p>The data on general practitioner (GP) appointments are from a new data collection and are still experimental therefore the data and collection method are still being refined and improved. Whilst these early datasets published by NHS Digital do not yet represent a comprehensive picture, they are an important key step in understanding pressures on primary care. NHS England, NHS Digital and the government are working closely with GPs to understand how the data on GP appointments can be refined to improve the overall picture of primary care activity.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Gloucestershire</p></td><td><p>England</p></td><td><p>Gloucestershire</p></td><td><p>England</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Time between booking an appointment with a general practice and having the appointment (days)</p></td><td colspan="2"><p>February 2019</p></td><td colspan="2"><p>March 2018 to February 2019</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Same Day</p></td><td><p>38.3%</p></td><td><p>42.3%</p></td><td><p>37.5%</p></td><td><p>42.2%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>One Day</p></td><td><p>6.2%</p></td><td><p>6.8%</p></td><td><p>6.5%</p></td><td><p>6.8%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Two to Seven Days</p></td><td><p>19.2%</p></td><td><p>19.8%</p></td><td><p>20.0%</p></td><td><p>20.1%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Eight to 14 Days</p></td><td><p>15.4%</p></td><td><p>14.4%</p></td><td><p>14.8%</p></td><td><p>13.8%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>15 to 21 Days</p></td><td><p>9.1%</p></td><td><p>7.6%</p></td><td><p>8.6%</p></td><td><p>7.4%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>22 to 28 Days</p></td><td><p>6.4%</p></td><td><p>5.1%</p></td><td><p>6.4%</p></td><td><p>5.0%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>More than 28 Days</p></td><td><p>5.4%</p></td><td><p>4.0%</p></td><td><p>6.3%</p></td><td><p>4.7%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Total</p></td><td><p>100.0%</p></td><td><p>100.0%</p></td><td><p>100.0%</p></td><td><p>100.0%</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of timely access to general practice. The Prime Minister's Challenge Fund has allocated £50 million to pilot ways to improve access around the country, to give general practitioners (GPs) the flexibility to meet the needs of the local population. These pilots will benefit more than 7.5 million patients across more than 1,110 practices.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, changes to the GP contract in April 2014 introduced a new Enhanced Service, which includes a commitment to same day telephone consultations with a professional in the GP surgery, where necessary, for the most at risk in the population.</p><p> </p> more like this
