More cash for out-of-hours

Health minister John Hutton has promised extra Government cash to help GPs opt out of out-of-hours.

Mr Hutton made the pledge in an unscheduled speech to GP out-of-hours co-operatives at a Department of Health conference last week.

Guidance will follow on the extra resources, which are in addition to £110 million announced earlier this year.

A GP co-op chair at the conference said Mr Hutton's speech was aimed at convincing GPs 'all was going well' with provisions for out of hours care.
