GP Surgeries

Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many (i) GP surgeries and (ii) single handed GP surgeries there have been in each of the last five years for which figures are available, broken down by (a) region and (b) health authority. [42586]

Mr. Hutton [holding answer 12 March 2002]: The information requested is shown in the table. The table identifies all General Practitioner partnerships (but not individual GP surgeries) including those Xpartnerships of one", by region and health authority. Some GPs who practice without being in partnership with another doctor may have a salaried Assistant or may work in a group practice.
