Headline

Seven-day GP access 'will not be a priority' following PM's resignation

Comment

This is most unhelpful of Sir Sam. Where 7-day working has been done well it has reduced pressure on local practices and created investment in primary care. It has convinced GPs that we can work together in groups of practices. It has also convinced their CCGs that GPs can work together to provide population-based care - and as a result many CCGs and STPs are now looking to disinvest in secondary care in order to invest more in delivering more services in primary care (and especially general practice). The last thing we need - on the eve of STPs submitting their plans - is yet another government deciding to throw everything out and try to start again from scratch.
