Half of PM’s seven-day GP access pilots have cut opening hours


Routine appointments at the weekend- balls. I want work done at a weekend then I have to pay a premium. The NHS jam is spread too thin and Cameron's fund itn't new money, it's the money that should be in the NHS anyway as they haven't paid increases at a level to keep up with expenses. I have to take time off to see dentist, solicitor, bank manager and my GP- so should everyone else- if not pay a bloody big premium. Ivan and his mates can earn it if they wish but it's unworkable where you cannot fill posts for regular GPs let alone OOH and extended hours.
