LONDON, UK. All hospitals and GP practices in England will provide “seven-day NHS” by 2020 under a future Conservative government, David Cameron has said. Voters have complained they are unable to obtain elective and other non-emergency treatments, such as breast augmentation, at the weekends.
In the pre-election press conference it was said;
“NHS Staff simply do not work hard enough. It is completely unacceptable that staff get days off and nobody bothers to come to work at the weekend”.
Currently ‘lazy’ NHS staff only provide a full service 5 days a week with only life-saving and emergency treatment available at weekends.
Mr Bates from London says “we live in a 24 hour world now. The NHS needs to catch up. It’s like Amazon saying we don’t accept orders at the weekends, I should be able to see a doctor about whatever I want, whenever I want. After all, I pay my taxes!”.
Under current rules NHS Staff only have to work 37.5 hours a week with weekends off, the new legislation means staff will have to commit to a minimum of 50 hours with no pay increase and no extra funding.
