HURRY ROBOTS:

Fewer people die in hospital at weekends, study finds (Sarah Boseley, 6 May 2016, The Local)

Fewer people - not more - die in hospital at weekends than during the week, according to a major study which contradicts evidence cited by the health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, to justify the imposition of new contracts on junior doctors.

Hunt has repeatedly stated that junior doctors must routinely work at weekends because the higher death rate is linked to lower staffing levels.

The less health care you receive the better off you are.
