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


I'm sorry but surely the response to "..evidence that some patients go to A&E with minor issues because they can’t get a same day appointment with a GP – especially at weekends" is better patient (and media) (and politicians') education, not to compound the misconception that minor issues need to be seen by a doctor at all, let alone require a same day appointment at whatever cost to the health service in this country.
