NHS 111 redirecting 'frequent fliers' back to GPs

Comment

Anonymous @9.35, The problem is that it's very difficult for a computer program to distinguish between a heart attack / asthma attack / GORD etc. It's hard enough for a clinician with 10 yrs experience. Asking untrained operators to do this with an inflexible computer program is doomed to failure, and will never work. Sorry, but there are some things in life which just can't be dumbed down.
