Information is not collected in the requested format. Information is only available for the number of general practitioner (GP) practices offering extended opening. According to the latest data collected in June 2008, there are no GP practices within Gloucestershire Primary Care Trust currently offering extended opening.

In order to extend GP opening hours £158 million has been provided nationally. The development and location of services are a matter for the national health service locally, based on need and working in conjunction with clinicians, patients and other stakeholders. The hon. Member may therefore wish to raise this matter locally.
