NHS 111 implodes as GPC withdraws support for urgent care hotline

Comment

GPs should never have accepted the superficially attractive package by Labour's Health Secretary, Hewlett. Once that happened the moral ground among GPs established for 100 years was lost with the result that the medical profession's clout became seriously undermined. What has now happened is a direct consequence of Hunt's attempt to recover a quality health service without him having the skills to achieve his target.
