Patients prioritise weekday access over seven-day opening

My local surgery has the following charges Fees Under 6 yrs Free 6-14 yrs $35.50 15-24 yrs $45.80 25-44 yrs $56.00 45-64 yrs $56.00 65+ yrs $53.00 These charges are for a standard 15min appt which is state subsidised. Go over that and you pay full rate which is nearly double for the next 15mins. Evening appts cost $20 more. They are open on Saturday and Sunday morning for walk-in appts at a further $20 on top. Anyone who thinks this can be done for free is bonkers. Oh and the surgery has had two new Drs from England, the last one in the last 3 months.
