MP Graham Stuart has welcomed news that NHS England has provided funds to the Clinical Commissioning Group to improve access to GP services by making more appointments available outside of normal opening hours.
Mr. Stuart says he often receives complaints from constituents that GP care is not currently available during the evenings and over the weekends.

East Riding residents are being given the chance to have their say on plans to improve access to GP services in the region by making more appointments available outside of normal GP practice opening hours.

The housing market for the Beverley area is set for another tough year as economic uncertainties continue to limit any price rises. Despite many government-led initiatives such as the removal of stamp duty, it seems that increased living costs and fears over a rise in interest rates will put many people off buying a new home in 2018.
Last year saw both the number of homes sold and their prices decreasing across the whole of the HU17 area. Compared to a relative high point in 2014, the number of home sales in the HU17 region was at its lowest point since 2009. And when coupled with a sudden drop in prices compared to 2016, it seems that the market is set for a tough year.
