Surely the whole point is that we provide a service to our patients at a time convenient to the patient and what goes on behind closed doors is entirely between the patient and the doctor.
Performing an HGV medical is part of the service we provide for patients, even though it may be private work. Saturday is a good time for many of these drivers, who work away during the week, and we should not deprive them a chance to earn their livelihood without taking time off work.
Is it time for another legal challenge?
