Britons can now combine grocery shopping with doctors' appointments

New York Times, March 3, 2008
J Sainsbury, one of Britain's largest supermarket chains, has become the first in the country to offer a visit to a family doctor in one of its stores. At Sainsbury, a team of government-financed doctors will see patients. To start, they will work in the evenings and on Saturdays in a fully equipped consultation room in one store. If the pilot project succeeds, it is expected to be introduced in other Sainsbury stores.
