Patients deserve the best care in hospitals in the evenings and at weekends.
In 2010 we recommended that any hospital admitting acutely ill patients should have a consultant physician on-site for at least 12 hours per day, seven days a week, who should have no other duties scheduled during this time.
We believe that to make this aim a reality, some services will need to be redesigned and may have resource implications.
