Government facing NHS Direct backlash


Exactly Anonymous | 2-Sep-2010 11:06 am!!! In one respect that is why I think 111 will work much, much better. However it still needs to have qualified staff manning it. I think if these qualified and experienced staff can inform people of the wide range of Nursing services out there (that many will not know of), from walk in centres to specialist community Nurses, then it could be a very good thing. However like you said, walk in centres, especially being Nurse led, are a much better option and they should be expanded much more than they are now, in terms of availability, staff and services offered.
