Choose and Book chaos as trusts cancel appointments


I'm moving away from C&B as the time goes - the connections are slower (?more users), doesn't always give me the right choice, some choices are unreasonably difficult to understand (breast, other 2ww is not a cancer referral but 2ww, breast is cancer referral). Worst of all, I'm forbidden to give choice by my CCG (or PCT as they were) - I'm told I shouldn't use the local private hospital even though they have contract with NHS and appear on C&B, I shouldn't refer to other trust as it costs more, I can't pick consultants by name as it make waiting too long in some areas etc etc. So what's the point - other than making GP work as free admin for secondary care of course.......
