Patients prioritise weekday access over seven-day opening


Ivan rather proves the point that causes many of us concern. He didn't have any desire for Sunday shopping until it was available. After a while, additional opening becomes taken for granted and then a reduction would be resisted. The same might be applied to GP opening with the rather crucial difference that what might be funded to promote demand will soon become a "right" with no guarantee that the funding will continue (and every possibility that it won't). Do private GPs hold routine surgeries at weekends?
