English GP surgeries reach new patient 'breaking point'

Large numbers of GP surgeries in England have stopped taking on new patients or have applied to do so, a BBC investigation has found.

The British Medical Association (BMA) says many are at "breaking point" as they struggle to fill staff vacancies.

At least 100 surgeries applied to NHS England to stop accepting new patients in 2014/15, a Freedom of Information request revealed.

NHS England said it was investing £15m to boost the workforce.
