Hewitt to act over GP 'black holes'

Action to end GP `black holes' was announced by Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt today.
Patients in six poorly-served areas will find it easier to see a family doctor, Ms Hewitt said. New practices and walk-in centres will be set up in five towns and cities next year, the Health Secretary promised.
