NHS admits GPs 'consistently exceeded capacity' last winter despite extra funds

Comment

All the extra money could have commissioned 50% more appointments if it wasn't earmarked for late night and weekend vanity project non urgent appointments. I have staff who would happily do an extra session in between school hours but quite rightly decline this work at the margins for late night clinics.
