GPs slept in practice overnight to be in time for morning surgery


If the sellafield workers are on strike and don't travel to work, why is there MORE traffic? I have also worked at practices which have on-site accommodation where the weekend doctor certainly stays if a locum,and several that use local B&Bs. However, it is clear that there is no change in use - on-call doctors hardly sleep at night, and sometimes drop off for a snooze during boring consultations in the daytime.
