The vast majority of patients can get appointments and are satisfied with their general practitioner but we know more needs to be done. This is why, nationally, we are offering 7.5 million more people extra evening and weekend appointments as well as email and Skype consultations. Seven practices in Dudley alone are open every Saturday morning during this winter.
