Seven-day GP access pioneer hails cut in unnecessary A&E attendance

Comment

When we increased our daily appointments and started ext surgery several years ago, we all noticed reduction in day time access demands. Even monday was ok. This lasted for a couple of months then within a year the access demand was back up to normal, except we were doing longer surgeries and evening surgeries. I hope this doen't happen in Manchester and over burden the already over worked GPs there. I feel for them.
