My experience of NHS Direct

.I refer to your story on NHS Direct (February 3). NHS Direct on one occasion diagnosed a man as having cystitis. I admitted him with appendicitis. On many occasions NHS Direct transfers responsibilty to co-ops ineffectively. Often patients use NHS Direct as a statement of their power to be seen by us, sometimes inappropriately.
