"We would apologise to anyone who is unhappy with the service or care that they have experienced but would also remind people to use the appropriate support for their needs; to contact 999 in emergency situations and to make use of their local pharmacy, GP or NHS Direct if unsure which service is best placed to help them."
Mark Cleary, Head of Healthcare Client Services, Conduit, said, "Conduit has secured this important new contract due to our technical and management capability for patient and customer centric delivery, backed by our deep experience in healthcare working for the Department of Health, NHS England, the the Health & Social care Information Centre (HSCIC) and numerous ambulance trusts."
"We believe Conduit will deliver best in class service for the HSCIC and their patients as the most experienced specialist supplier of call handling services for healthcare and in the NHS."
