Seven-day GP access pilot cuts A&E attendances 'by 10%'

Comment

So the purpose of primary care is to make life easier in A&E? I really struggle with the disproportionate focus on a small part of our health care system. Vastly more people are see every day in general practice than A&E. People can't get to see a GP during the bleedin week...why not fix that first you lunatics before you wander off with your head up your arses tinkering with GP Sunday's surgeries. So what if it reduces A&E attendances at the weekend? Why is that a surprise and why is that of any real importance to the NHS as a whole? Why not spend the money on the normal core GP services and see how that impacts? Politically driven hot air and bull ...how we've lately taken to organising the entire NHS these days. Baaa
