GP seven-day pilot schemes being abandoned in blow to Conservatives' access drive


I don't understand this schemes. They can't be for urgent care - patients should see OOH. They can't be for emergencies - patients should see A+E. So, They appear to be for routine appointments out of hours. Routine things like eczema or a verruca. Why is anyone surprised that treating verrucas or eczema at 7pm on a sunday does not reduce A+E attendance?
