Craven surgeries open on Saturdays to relieve strain on A&E
10:00am Friday 31st January 2014 in News
Patients are being encouraged to use the practices rather than put extra strain on already busy accident and emergency departments.
Dr Colin Renwick, chairman of Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCG, said: “We are really pleased that some of our GP practices are opening on Saturdays.
“We appreciate the commitment from GPs and their staff.
“As winter is a particularly busy time for A&E, we hope this will help ease some of the pressure on urgent care services.”
