GPs must open round the clock


Ministers push reforms that bypass Labour rebels

By Sam Lister, Health Correspondent


PATIENTS would be able to see a GP

in the evenings and at weekends

as part of a government drive to make primary care

available around the clock.

Private heathcare firms could also be used by the NHS

to provide late-night access to GPs

in a move that will risk angering Labour MPs.

Other reforms being considered include staffing surgeries late at night

with nurses and pharmacists once doctors had gone home.

Patricia Hewitt, the Health Secretary,

will tell health leaders today that doctors’ surgeries and other services

must be more accessible to fit in with patients’ busy lifestyles.

GPs must open round the clock,

Hurricane Ophelia

could boomerang back to US


Fri Sep 9, 2005
6:37 PM ET


MIAMI (Reuters) - Hurricane Ophelia edged away from Florida's Atlantic coast on Friday but forecasters said it probably would loop back and hit the southeast U.S. coast early next week.

Ophelia weakened to a tropical storm then strengthened back into a hurricane with 75-mph (121-kph) winds, just over the 74-mph (119-kph) threshold to regain hurricane status, the National Hurricane Center said. It was expected to gradually strengthen further.

At 5 p.m., Ophelia's center was about 220 miles south-southeast of Charleston, South Carolina.

It parked off Florida for three days, lashing the coast with squalls and beach-eating waves, but storm warnings were dropped as Ophelia began moving northeast away from the U.S. coast on Friday.

Forecasters expected it to turn back toward the United States and come ashore on Monday or Tuesday somewhere between north Florida and the Carolinas. The most likely target was South Carolina but Ophelia has so far defied forecasting models designed to predict its path.

There had been concern as Ophelia formed that it could threaten the U.S. Gulf Coast, which is still in the early stages of recovering from the August 29 strike by the much stronger Hurricane Katrina.

The forecast models still disagreed somewhat on Ophelia's target but none took it into the Gulf of Mexico.
