Extended Hours

The Extended Hours DES is to enable patients to consult a health care professional, face to face, by telephone or by other means at times other than during the core hours specified in the contractor's primary medical services contract.

The DES will continue unchanged until 30 September. From Oct 2017 the practices who regularly close for a half day, on a weekly basis, will not ordinarily qualify for DES.
