Is it time for GPs to embrace seven-day working? No

Thank you Dr Small- so correct! We HAVE to open for extended hours already and all the patients I see are those that would normally see doctors at normal times but want to see me and can't get an appointment at other times as I am only parttime. They are always surprised the surgery is still open. It would be even worse on Sundays. Politicians are SO IGNORANT of the real situation in general practice and we are their scapegoat for all NHS problems whereas THEY are the real cause. If this comes in and I am expected to work weekends then I will retire aged 46!
