Is a 'seven-day NHS' feasible?

The "seven-day NHS" was a key pledge of former Prime Minister David Cameron, and has been taken on by Theresa May.

Her government envisages people having access to local GPs seven days a week. It also wants patients to receive the same level of urgent and emergency care in hospitals in England at weekends, as on Mondays to Fridays.
