Analysis: How the Government’s seven-day GP access scheme could work


I am not a GP but I do feel for what is being demanded of you in ever diminishing budgets. I think they will have to rethink their plans -maybe they could propose a more flexible less 9-5 schedule without an increase in hours -just so many patients who work can't actually get to see you -presently i would struggle BUT i would rather have a service that can provide then ALL hours opening with no resources!!! These days workplaces penalize anyone who attends a GP appointment during their working hours -guess what I didn't follow up with my over 55yrs check up? Why? would have had to take time off work and be in trouble with my employer.....
