In London, just a quick phone call to Lord Darzi in the middle of the night will bring him speeding to your house for a domiciliary visit.
He will even drive you to his own NHS hospital at 3.00am if necessary.
As from this week, there are no worries regarding out of hours health care in London!
However, what if you don’t stay in London?
What if you stay in Dorset?
Is NHS Direct the answer in Dorset?
For some, no.
Why, you take out a subscription of course – just like you do for the ‘The Lancet,” “The Economist,” “The New Scientist,” “Nature”, “Country Living,” or if you live near my highland granny, “The Peoples Friend.”
An idea from the USA no doubt.
And why not?
Surely a good idea like this couldn’t turn into a can of worms?
