Dr David Geddes, Head of Primary Care NHS England, tells Secondary Care and GPs to get ready for 7-day working

David Geddes is Head of Primary Care in England so he pays the GOS and the GP contract.  Secondary care is being told to sort out seven day working because people are much more likely to die in hospital if they are admitted to hospital at the weekend (don’t tell I told you but actually the lowest death rate is Monday then it rises steadily towards the weekend).  Now primary care is being told the same.  Optoms should be cheering loudly about being ahead of the game here really:
