NHS Direct denies GP bookings reports11th February 2011
NHS Direct has denied reports that it plans to take over the GP appointment bookings system.
While it is working with GPs in some areas of the UK on urgent out-of-hours appointments, the organisation says that a mass take-over is not planned with the main focus of early engagement with the emerging GP consortia being to discuss different ways of working together in areas such as 111 pilots, practice and local level reporting systems, web services, management of patients with long-term conditions, and out-of-hours GP appointment booking.
