British Medical Association warns on 'seven-day NHS'
The British Medical Association (BMA) has welcomed David Cameron's pledge that all hospitals in England will provide "a truly seven-day NHS" by 2020 under a future Conservative government.
At the party's spring forum, Mr Cameron said that more hospitals must provide top-level treatment at the weekend, starting with emergency care.
Labour said Tory plans for "extreme" spending cuts threatened the NHS.
Dr Paul Flynn from BMA said it supported the idea - but warned that many parts of the NHS would struggle to expand their services without significant extra funding.
