Correct.  NHS Direct is an initiative to try and offload work from
general practioners and casualty departments, so is strictly aimed at
communicating with the general public.

I'm not entirely sure that diabetes comes within its original mandate,
which was more that of providing a telephone service to advise on things
like common colds and minor accidents and refer to professionals only
when their involvement was likely to be of benefit.
