What exactly do you understand by a 24/7 NHS?
An NHS where people have access to medical help and advice 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year. Maybe you might this information helpful - http://www.nhs24.com/explained/services/
- and where mention is made of patients seeing a doctor, this is done by making an appointment in local out-of-hours clinics staffed by a rota of GPs who have computer access to your health records held by your GP. They can also provide you with medication if necessary which means there's no need for you to wait to go to a chemist with a prescription. A record of the consultation is sent to your GP, also by computer, so he/she will have it to hand immediately normal surgery hours are resumed.
It also includes access to emergency dental treatment and mental health practitioners.
