The chairman of the General Practitioners' Committee has told Pulse that it is "illegal" to make doctors stay open on the day of the royal wedding.
Dr Laurence Buckman said: "I’ve heard rumours that GPs were asked to stay open, that’s illegal, it's a bank holiday. And I’ve also heard rumours that OOH organisations have been asking GPs to pay for the privilege of them providing cover on a bank holiday and that is illegal...If it is officially a bank holiday, then it’s a bank holiday."
