An exclusive Pulse story on the lack of doctors in out-of-hours services has hit the national headlines.

A Pulse investigation has found that out-of-hours GP services are on a knife edge, with providers covering some four million patients admitting they have had overnight and weekend shifts over the past year with no GP cover.

GP out-of-hours leaders say this is part of a ‘worrying trend’, with fewer clinicians available and services often relying on non-medically qualified urgent health practitioners, nurses and paramedics.

The story has been covered by the Telegraph, the Mirror, the Sun, the Guardian and the Daily Mail.
