Publishing GP appointment waiting time information

From today, the government will publish data on GP appointment waiting times, allowing patients to make informed choices about which GP practice they choose to visit to improve patient care.

  • Everyone should be able to make informed choices about their care and get an appointment with their GP when they need one.
  • That is why the government will now publish practice-level data on GP appointments, showing the length of wait for GP appointments and how many appointments each GP practice delivers to increase patient choice – this comes alongside our plan to offer a million additional appointments this winter and 31,000 extra phone lines.
  • These changes will help towards the objective of enabling everyone to get an appointment within two weeks with urgent appointments on the same day, giving patients the care they deserve.
