PM's seven-day access pilots to be extended as NHS England claims 15% reduction in A&E attendance

Comment

W e have large swathes of society that demand instant gratification of their non emergency health needs (there may be many reasons for this) ,and they will always make use of a&e departments. If these "customers" (that is what they have become) are prepared to travel to a&e departments and wait, rather than make a routine GP appointment in office hours, doesn't it make more financial sense to staff a&e departments to cope with this demand, rather than fund every practice in the country to stay open. all hours.
