Government facing NHS Direct backlash

Anonymous | 1-Sep-2010 9:24 am, myself and a few others tried using the online version a while back now, putting in a variety of symptoms/illnesses from a mild headache to a full blown MI, (mostly they were minor ailments such as a cold) in EVERY case, the response was PANIC! DIAL 999!!!! Rubbish. These things will only ever work if manned by advanced clinical staff, able to diagnose on a variety of symptoms, and advise on the best place to go. It will never be perfect of course as we can never see the person, just go on what they are telling us, but it would be better than some teenage minimum wage telesales rep giving advice!
