Why won’t the Government listen to evidence on seven-day GP access?


pathetic centrist diktats with no common sense. This is an 'add on' to the two struggling pillars of general practice and OOH and helps neither because its soaking up available locums. It puts up the price of locums hurting both GP surgeries needing them and OOH trying in vain to fill gaps. Someone should tell the public they can see a doctor to get a non urgent BP check at the weekend but forget it if they need a doctor for an emergency. You could not make this nonsense up !
