NHS 111 redirecting 'frequent fliers' back to GPs

Comment

So another example of fragmentation of personality as far as DoH and government are concerned. The Chamcellor is to deliver a hopelessly tight budget today and this 111 is costing 5% more in ambulance attendance in these pilot areas. Where is the logics? Once again ,DoH is totally remote and obsessesd with constant reorganisation as per Lord Francis. Do not forget GPs time is inappropriately consumed to catch up with these 111 'referrals' , hencing jeopardising the best interests of other patients . Duty of condour? Seriously ? Who is listening to us???
