There are calls for the private company behind Cornwall's out of hours doctors to give up the contract.

It is after Pirate FM told you Serco is thinking about subcontracting GPs from Devon to run part of the service instead.

Now MP Andrew George warns that will mean it gets "fragmented."

But last time we spoke to Doctor Louis Warren from Serco he insisted inspectors think things are getting better: "A great deal of improvement has been made. The real issue that they highlighted last year in terms of our clinical staff and capability in terms of GPs and nurses has been addressed and we have significantly uplifted those numbers. And I think that we're confident in the service that we're delivering and confident that it's going to improve going forward.

"I think we're now in a position that the people of Cornwall can be confident in the service that they are getting which has already been demonstrated in the clinical capacity and our ability to see them face to face."
