A significant number of doctors operating in Scotland are offering extended opening hours, it has been suggested.
According to government figures, 51 per cent of surgeries in the country now have some form of extended hours, locum doctors may be interested to discover.
This compares to just 37.8 per cent of GPs in England.
The area with the highest proportion of practices which offered extended hours was the Forth Valley, where 86 per cent of doctors were signed up to the initiative.
"We are encouraged that just four months into the new scheme that so many GPs are participating in extending opening hours for their patients," stated Scottish health secretary Nicola Sturgeon.
She went on to urge doctors who have not yet entered into the initiative to consider getting involved.
Meanwhile, Richard Lewis, Welsh secretary of the British Medical Association, recently warned that Wales must attract more young doctors if it is to avoid a shortage of GPs, the Daily Post reported.
