Quality of care at weekends in the hospital to be the same as during the week.

At the moment there is a reduced staff at weekends, and some services are unavailable to patients in hospital and outpatients. There should be no reduction of care at weekends and bank holidays. 

Why the contribution is important

I am sure if there was an analysis of deaths in the hospital, there would be more at the weekends, as the quality of care at the weekend is greatly reduced.

    Completely agree. I was admitted via A&E on a Saturday but had to wait until Monday for an MRI (and needed emergency surgery based on the results).
