GP opening hours scheme 'to benefit seven million patients'

14 April 2014 Last updated at 07:35 BST

Patients in England are finding out whether their GP surgery has been given funding to open for seven days a week.

New opening hours for some GP surgeries in England will benefit more than seven million patients, far more than originally planned, David Cameron says.

The prime minister announced the £50m GP Access Fund in October - and he now says a "great response" from surgeries means 1,147 will take part.

But the British Medical Association said nearly 7,000 practices would not receive any of the funding. Sarah Falkland reports.
