ABSTRACT
The article reports that putting out-of-hours shifts online has seen more general practitioners (GPs) take slots. Organising Herts Out-of-Hours, the out-of-hours provider for south-east Hertfordshire, now that all GPs have dropped 24-hour responsibility, has provided a number of challenges.A logging system was designed so that people could identify each user logged on to the system, via their log-in and password, and control what they could see and do and to trace every action taken. Even the technophobes have embraced the system, and people have had interest from doctors who thought they might give up out-of-hours but who find it so easy to match their workload to their home life that they are taking up shifts.
