EAST YORKS: A charity survey has found people in Yorkshire find it difficult to make an appointment with their GP.
Cancer Research UK says patients in the region say difficulty with appointments is the main reason they would delay going to see their doctor.
A total of 39 per cent of those questioned in Yorkshire said this might put them off going to see the doctor about a symptom they thought was serious, above other considerations such as worrying about what the doctor would find and wasting GP time.
Nicki Embleton, spokesman for Yorkshire and the Humber, said: "It's concerning to think something as simple as making a doctor's appointment could be putting people off seeking help for a serious symptom.

"Further work is now needed to find out what lies at the heart of this issue.
"For example, whether people dislike not being able to see the same GP, if appointment times do not suit, or if the booking system is too complicated."
