Serco says Cornwall calls to doctors back to normal

Calls to Cornwall's out-of-hours doctors service are back to normal after technical problems led to delays, according to service provider Serco.

Patients were delayed getting through to the service on Saturday.

Serco said: "Following problems with the out-of-hours telephone system, the service is now operating as normal."

Serco, which has run the service since 2006, added that people should continue to use the service for urgent medical assistance.
