Practices to offer routine Saturday appointments in £810m a year bid to reshape general practice

Comment

Why just Saturday? what about Sunday till noon? will home visits have to be done on saturdays as well after the surgery till noon. that makes the day finish much later than noon. also will our secondry care colleagues be doing "routine" clinics along side us in hospital? Will the routube phlebotomy service and routine x-rays service be available? will all consultants be readily available at the end of the phone or in their clinic on Saturday morning to offer help and support/advice. No. Great it will work fine then. and really cheap, ongoing funding.
