The government wants more GP surgeries in England to adopt longer hours.

It has announced nine pilot projects, which will allow groups of family doctors to bid for money from a £50 million fund, in return for opening 12 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Health Secretary said he wanted to rediscover the ideal of a family doctor.
