Cameron: All hospitals in England will provide “a truly seven-day NHS” by 2020

 
“With a future Conservative Government, we would have a truly seven-day NHS.”
Speaking at the Conservative party’s spring forum in Manchester in March 2015, David Cameron promised that “everyone will have access to the NHS services they need, 7 days a week by 2020”.

Mr Cameron added: “For years it’s been too hard to access the NHS out of hours. But illness doesn’t respect working hours.”

“Heart attacks, major accidents, babies – these things don’t just come from nine to five.”

From the Conservative manifesto: “Our commitment to you: ensure you can see a GP and receive the hospital care you need, 7 days a week by 2020.”
