At this week’s Socialist Health Association AGM, both Andrew Gwynne MP and a GP member were enthusiastic about how progressive the idea of a 7-day NHS is, and how the Labour Party should support it. The phrases ‘the NHS should be there when people need it’ and ‘it will reduce health inequalities’ were used.[2]
