More than 15,000 patients in North Kirklees waited seven days or longer to see a GP the last time they tried, an official NHS survey has found.

Across the North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) area, 15,592 people said they had faced a wait of a week or more when they phoned for an appointment in the last year.

The annual NHS England survey, released earlier this month, also revealed that four in 10 patients who have a preferred GP had to see another doctor when they last went to their surgery.
