star this property answer text <p>The Government has committed to ensuring that everyone can see their general practitioner (GP) at a convenient time by increasing the availability of routine appointments in general practice in the evening and at the weekend.</p><p> </p><p>By March 2019, all clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) should provide extended access to general practice for the whole of their registered population (subject to local demand). This includes ensuring that access is available during peak times of demand, including bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods. ‘Refreshing NHS plans’, published by NHS England in February 2018, included the deliverable for CCGs to provide extended access to GP services for 100% of their population by October 2018. This was to ensure additional capacity was in place ahead of winter 2018.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England and Health Education England (HEE) are working together with the profession to increase the GP workforce. This includes measures to boost recruitment, address the reasons why GPs are leaving the profession, and encourage GPs to return to practice.</p><p> </p><p>The number of doctors entering GP speciality training has been increasing year on year. This year, HEE recruited the highest number of GP trainees ever - 3,473 GP trainees against a target of 3,250, a 10% increase on last year.</p><p> </p><p>Greater skill mix is also key to releasing capacity in general practice. We have committed to investment in the multidisciplinary workforce in general practice. As of September 2018, there were over 3,700 additional clinical staff, excluding GPs, working in general practice compared to 2015; consisting of over 600 more nurses and 3,000 more other direct patient care staff.</p>

star this property answer text <p>NHS Digital started publishing monthly data on appointments in general practice in December 2018. Data is currently available between November 2017 and January 2019. A table showing the time between booking an appointment with a general practice and having the appointment (in days) for England and NHS North (Yorkshire and Humber) is attached. There are seasonal variations in the general practitioner appointment data therefore the most recent month for which data is available (January 2019) is presented as well as a 12-month average. NHS Digital’s data on ‘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> more like this

star this property 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>
