Election update, 11 April: NHS funding and access to GPs

11 April 2015

Continuing on the NHS theme, the Telegraph leads with the Conservatives' pledge for over 75's to get same day access to GP's.

The I highlights grim tidings for the Conservatives in the polls, saying that Labour could win enough seats to form a coalition with the Lib Dems.
