Headline

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

Comment

If my medical practice were based on things which seemed like a good idea at the time, I would spend rather a lot of my time at the GMC's tribunals. I try to practice evidence based medicine. There is clearly no evidence based policy. Does anyone even know if Joe Public wants Sunday access - if given the alternative that it defunds other services? Of course if you ask the unlimited rice pudding question "Do you want to be able to see your GP at weekends?" you will get the expected answer. If you asked "Do you mind if your GP practice closes down because it is starved of funds to give you Sunday opening?" you may get a different answer.
