NHS ‘Fails young people’
The Sun newspaper has unveiled how fourteen per cent of young people were unable to see a GP when they last tried, a report has revealed.
And thirteen per cent ended up without aid.
Patients aged 18-34 who cannot see GPs are twice as likely as older folk to use A&E or walk-in units.
Twelve per cent do in such cases, compared to six per cent of over-55s.
Citizens Advice said its 900,000-patient quiz showed the NHS failed young people.
Chief Gillian Guy said: “Long working hours can make it difficult for younger adults to get to GPs.”
