New GP out-of-hours provider appeals for doctors to sign up for shifts

Comment

this is so sad ... why are we not thinking about the public. they are in vital and legitimate need of health services. we should do our duty via the Hippocratic oath and volunteer our services for free to support Cornwell Health. Do you really need to work just 12 hours a day? If you slept for 4 hours and stayed on site you could do a 20 hr shift. Some patients' don't have families or cars or houses. Do you really need those things? We can't expect the fourth richest country in the world with over 100 billionaires to just pay for doctors can we? C'mon comrades if we all chipped in and gave up our families and material items we could make this work :) Imagine a new NHS where doctors worked 24 hrs a day 7 days a week for free. the public would love it ! sadly i can't help as i will be working in the private sector.
