Analysis: A back-door way of introducing seven-day GP opening

Comment

I couldn't agree more with Tony. The capacity just isn't there in general practice. What we need to do is create alterative 'care pathways' for patients to divert them away from general practice so that we see those who really need a GP or PN. Other services have introduced demand redirection strategies and general practice needs to follow suit; this will require investment in establishing administrative triage and alternative pathways.
