NHS 111 implodes as GPC withdraws support for urgent care hotline

Comment

One of our partner does OOH and he was telling us the patients were complaining they had to be on phone for 47 min - no, they weren't put on a que, someone actually talked to him for 47 min before deciding a medical input was needed. Most things I'll decide within 3min if the patient needs a physical r/v, treatment or just advice. My tirage telephone calls are placed in 5min slots!
