Letter, calls and emails: Extended opening will win few friends

Dear Editor

I entirely agree with Dr Chris Lancelot's well expressed views with regards to Mr Brown's plan to insist GP practices stay open late and at the weekends (GP, 9 November).

No government can satisfy everyone, but such changes obviously will displease the majority of GPs and their staff across the country with only some small benefits to the minority of commuters.

Mr Brown must not forget the cooperation shown by GPs recently.

They deserve admiration, not yet more directives and demands on their already overstretched time and family life.

Dr Hari Nawal, Bedford, Bedfordshire.
