Budget for seven-day GP access doubled to £750m, announces Treasury

Comment

Think you'll find most people did not vote for this rabble Ivan. I assume your oozing enthusiasm is serious sarcasm?! after all if you ask the public if they'd like their GP parked outside their gate day and night (just in case) for no tax demand at all they'd all love it too. the way you're talking is perpetuating further the "it's my right" attitude…. funny that asking Doctors what the want or can provide isn't being considered, and why should it be properly funded? We already have WICs, OOH all over the country (can people not take some responsibility for finding the time to see their GPs like we have to to see their hairdresser / white goods deliveries, dentist etc)- we simply need proper funding and indemnity cover for the GPs working already outside 18:30 (or instead simply access the Noctors who NHSE feel are an easy replacement for our clinical skills). Who is going to pay for the HUGE increase in indemnity needed to provide this Tory vanity project? The jump from 7 to 8+ sessions is frightening. Absolute joke, at least RCGP also welcome this ongoing fall of excrememt on us from a great height. Recruitment problem - just cannot see why.
