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


The best thing about this is that it will improve nothing but 1) kill ooh and urgent care- doctors will chose the better paid one with less risk 2) increase demand - see noctor on saturday/sunday (no change of seeing a doctor, he is dealing with the "urgent" which should have gone to a+E in the first place)- you need to see your GP on monday for a prescription/referral/proper doctor assessment/I haven't got a clue but see someone who does and cares/at least I got my £75 for seeing despite not having done a thing to help except redirect you back to your GP who gets paid the same amount to provide unlimited service for you all year round 3)destroy what remains of true on the ground primary care 4) and finally privatise primary care once and for all. the ultimate aim. I can't believe our own colleagues stab us in the back (no names mentioned but you know who you are above) but all I have to say is "et tu brutus". Good luck for providing this service which will not be there in even 10 years time.
