GPs told to prepare for 'Tesco-style' seven-day opening


Our system has been based around providing as good a working environment as you can for the people who work in the health service, which isn’t necessarily matched with what the people who want services have. If you wanted a day case operation, and you didn’t want to take a day off work, why can’t you have it on a Saturday or Sunday?,’ he said. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Oh I see now Sir Bruce. All patients who have day case surgery go back to work next day therefore if they have their op at the weekend they won't miss any work at all ( unless they work in Tescos of course). Thank goodness I retire soon.
