Seven-day GP service thrown lifeline by NHS England 'to deliver Tory manifesto'


To anon WHP@10.34 Writing as one of the perceptive, experienced, realists (perhaps you interpret that as moaning) objections are irrespective of the source and otherwise distribution of the money. It is taxpayers' money, not money available through the generosity of NHSE or the Govt. My objections are to it being spent on bolstering political egos rather than essential medical care. Seven day pilots take resources from general practice and from our OOH services. While extra money is poured into these pilots which cannot be allowed to fail, surgeries are closing through lack of resources. There is a bigger picture.
