I am sure you have had times when you wanted to make an appointment with the doctor, but could not reach them or waited for a long time. It may have occurred due to their busy working hours or when they were attending another call. Considering the need, Mobile Operator Orange, UK recently launched a mobile health service called “Orange smartnumbers”. It is claimed UK’s first healthcare service from a mobile operator improving patient care and reducing the time it takes to contact healthcare professionals.
