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

Comment

And what is the point of being able to provide Phlebotomy on a Sunday? The labs are not open to take the samples even if we could get them collected and delivered. We already provide 7 days a week opening but using the OOH system. Its all just political sound bites that make it look as though the patients are getting something new. We used to open on Saturday mornings 10 years ago. This was also abandoned through lack of patient demand. The sentiment "frequently empty" has a familiar ring to it. Just like most Political sound bites.
