§ Dr. Evan Harris
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the baseline date was for the 24 and 48 hour access targets set out in the NHS plan; and what proportion of GP practices in England met the 24 and 48 hour access targets at that date. 
§ Mr. Hutton
The NHS Plan primary care access target was informed by the results of the 1998 National Patient Survey, which found that 53 per cent. of patients had been able to get an appointment with their general practitioner within two days of their preferred date. Both the baseline data and the target are expressed in terms of the access available to patients rather than the performance of practices.
§ Chris Grayling
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list the national targets adopted by the NHS. 
§ Mr. Hutton
The NHS Plan set out the Government's vision for the national health service and makes clear the commitments that we have made for improving services. A copy is available in the Library.
We also recently published "Improvement, Expansion and Reform: Planning and Priorities Framework 2003-20056 (PPF)" which sets out the health and social care priorities for the next three years.
A copy of the PPF is available in the Library.
