this is not sustainable. throwing little lumps of money here and there for weekend opening is a sticking plaster, and unfortunately being done for the wrong reasons. we have no data that a&e attendances have dropped with weekend opening. as a recently qualified gp i am very close to leaving my salaried job to start locuming because of things like this.
