NHS Direct to be paid £8.4m to cover NHS 111 delay


So where do we stand as GP's? If an OOH provider contacts me on a Sunday afternoon to say they are extremely busy, so could I resume responsibilties for my own patients, my answer will be a firm but polite 'No'. We are not contracted for that work, we are not (and won't be) paid for it, and I for one feel that I owe the DH bugger all in terms of goodwill. Do my colleagues feel the same?
