Headline

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

Comment

not surprising..at all.......... the 7 day opening is ludicrous; discourages patient self care and is a criminal waste of nhs money desperately needed elsewhere to fund genuine need. frankly it is an utterly moronic piece of craven vote chasing which the profession should have no truck with. not surprising..no other health system operates a 7 day minor illness service..as all other countries possess an iota of common sense. i really wish our once honourable profession would no longer endlessly prostitute itself for the endless insane pieces of political garbage like this. we should all learn to say NO;behave as true professionals and only do scientifically evaluated interventions...any other action is always immoral..like practising homeopathy when it is known to be absolute nonsense....nonsense is nonsense and always damages patient care globally by wasting resources and creating false priorities. if we all had ......the profession and the nhs would be in far far better shape. we as gps also need a revolution in our leadership..united behind medical science we would have support from the public and humiliate the political pygmies we are infested with.
