Letter to a newspaper: A one paragraph description of the confusion around seven-day working

Sir,

Most of us who work in the NHS find it impossible to understand how we could provide more extensive elective or emergency services at the weekend without either working for nothing (which is unfair), working even more hours (which is unsafe), depleting weekday resources to boost weekend resources (which will hobble the system) or employing more workers and paying them fairly for the labour they do (which is not part of the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt’s proposals).
