A GP clinic at a major hospital advertised as a seven-days-a-week service has been closed for at least 18 days this year. 

Located in the grounds of the Northern Beaches Hospital, it is meant to relieve pressure on the adjoining Emergency Department by offering treatment for lower urgency cases such as sports injuries, minor fractures and migraine.
