The article focuses on the issues raised by the decision of England Prime Minister David Cameron to extend the working hours of the general practitioners (GPs) in Manchester, England. Former general practioner Sarah Wollaston says that the Government would create an over-promising action if it require GPs to work seven days a week. National Association of Primary Care president James Kingsland adds that the proposal will provide an additional investment requiring each patient to pay £40.
