Letters, calls and emails: Government ignores its own access survey

Dear Editor

I would hope that if a third of patients are asking for longer opening hours, then the positive flip side would be that two thirds are happy with the current situation (GP, 5 October).

If this is the case, surely the headlines on the front of GP should read: 'Most patients do not want longer opening hours.'

Followed by how the government is not even listening to its own survey which showed that only 4 per cent of patients were calling for evening opening hours.

Your paper would be an ideal platform to support our good work with positive headlines.
