However, the plans have angered over-stretched and overworked GPs.
The fear is the extended hours and extra day would push them beyond the brink and lower the standard of care.
Chairman of the Royal College of GPs, Professor Martin Marshall, said in a statement: “The number of highly trained, experienced GPs planning to leave the profession early is concerning, but not altogether unsurprising given the intense workload and workforce pressures GPs and our teams are working under on a daily basis.”
Meanwhile, GP Dr Martin Whitenburgh added: “I don’t recognise the job anymore and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone pursuing a career in general practice.”
