Headline

NHS Direct ditches two 'unsustainable' 111 contracts

Comment

Hunt was on Radio 4 this morning. It appeared that he has learnt to not 'just repeat something logically indefensible' because he sounded almost 'normal' and not all 'part-speak' - it can get quite embarrassing on R4 if you stick to 'a clearly idiotic party line' and the presenter who is interviewing you is in a bad mood ! In fact, from what I caught of it, the only thing Hunt was really defending, was using 111 for the calls: he was much less defensive, about whether the current '111 System' might not be working, and could need altering.
