In May David Cameron said that he wanted a ‘truly seven-day NHS’.  Was this a genuine commitment or another of his many empty soundbites; who knows? GPs certainly don't.

     At a time when local GPs and those around the UK are working harder than ever but struggling to maintain the existing service launching the world’s first  seven-day service would be a monumental challenge.  You would expect the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, to be working closely with doctors to start planning these changes but in fact they have been kept totally in the dark about what a seven-day service would look like and have been accused of being obstructive. How can you obstruct something about which you know nothing?

The British Medical Association,  the representative body for GPs, needs our help and  is asking  for us all to sign a letter asking the Prime Minister to reveal his plan for a ‘truly seven-day NHS’ by adding our names to a letter and tweeting this. The link for more information and the letter is here: http://bma.org.uk/showusyourplan.   This isn’t just a matter for the medical profession it affects us all and it is crucial for all of us to know what the government is planning,  so please sign.
