Winter plans request GPs open on bank holidays to relieve hospital pressure


I'm afraid my medical defence subscription is related to the number of sessions I work over a year and the type of work.While caritas might get me pitching in in event of major incidents/epidemics/catastrophes with pay being low priority,that does NOT apply to an anticipated/predicted service shortfall in a relatively wealthy country like this one,and caritas doesn't pay for medicolegal cover either.Besides the thought of a bank holiday off is the one thing that keeps me going at the moment...
