Care record chaos will add to consultations

I was interested to read the story about the paid hotline for anyone wanting to learn more about the Summary Care Record (‘Care record advice on 0845 hotline').

My wife has already rung this hotline as she wants to opt out the children – only to be told to ring her GP. I have no idea what to do, as I'm sure her GP doesn't.

I await the increase in consultations about this and will squeeze them in between those QOF reviews, the pre-bookings, the on-the-day bookings and those actually needing a doctor.
