There is a lot of media coverage re GPs being shut over the bank holidays. It simply isn’t true. This is yet another media spin to make GP practices look responsible for A&E attendances.
A lot of extras clinics for routine GP appointments have been put on every bank holiday over the last few years and this year is no different.
Although our individual practices my not have the usual GPs in, we pool our resources so that there are clinics all weekend bookable through your GP practices and by 111 over the weekend.
Please ask about these appointments if you feel you need one.
