Description:
Throughout the early 1990s a trend emerged in the delivery of General Practitioner services in concentrating that delivery within a normal working week. Accordingly/ scheduled General Practitioner surgery hours have increasingly moved away from night-time, weekends and public holidays. That trend was recognised and facilitated by agreements reached in 1997 and 1998 between the Department of Health and Children and the Irish Medical Organisation which allowed for significant adjustments in the provision of scheduled General Practitioner services which were (and are) directly relevant to the out of -hours context.
