NHS Direct call centre in Chelmsford 'could close'

Bosses at NHS Direct have rejected union claims that most of its call centres, including one in Chelmsford, will close.

Unison, which represents workers at the telephone health service, said 24 out of 30 sites will shut. NHS Direct say the claims are wrong and no decision has been made about the future of the centres.

They say they have only confirmed six sites which will deliver the new non-emergency NHS 111 service.
