I'm sure there are thousands of other people suffering in silence rather than attempt to jump through all the hoops necessary to make an appointment with someone, somewhere on the telephone.

We are not alone.

The medical service, if you can get it, still remains top class but a system supporting easy access to a qualfied medical person, not a receptionist, needs to be created. Is it dial 111? How ill do you need to be for that call?
