Headline

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

Comment

Offer people a service based around increased convenience (rather than clinical need) which they don't have to pay for and then act amazed that it's "popular" with the users. Maybe the pilot should offer "extended hours" co-pay slots based on typical rates for getting a plumber or a lawyer in the evening or at a weekend - see if it's still as popular?
