NHS 111 implodes as GPC withdraws support for urgent care hotline

Comment

I am a GP partner and work OOH for two different providers over the weekend. Recently there has been acute worsening of OOH but thats nothing compared to the nonsense that comes out of 111 soft launch with URTI`s being rushed with 999 as "breathlessness" while torted testicle being advised to contact GP routinely. The ambulance call outs have been significant of late. The S*** has hit the fan.
