PM's seven-day GP pilot drastically reduces Sunday opening amid 'frequently empty' appointments

Comment

"7 day service, if implemented, so be provided by the respective surgeries only and this should be appropriately funded" This really wouldn't work. Demand is low (as in the story) and so you'd have practices opening up for 30 mins to provide a few appointments on a sunday. This is unnecessary to begin with but if it has to be provided it can only be via aggregating appointments in a couple of locations
