Same thing happening with smear recall. When the job of inviting and chasing them up was taken away from GP surgeries to be done 'better' by someone else, the uptake fell. (and many GPs stopped doing them because of the 'number' business and the requirement of needing training when we'd been doing them for 20 years). How about some extra resources for practices for all the extra consultations this is going to generate Jeremy?
