NHS 111 implodes as GPC withdraws support for urgent care hotline


NHS 111 is an absolute shambles in Liverpool. These half baked ideas mess up everything and only increase our work load. Today, this evening, I had to stay in my surgery till after 19:00 hours, trying to sort this problem out. The IM & T department were panicking, despite being told that the system was not working. I still am not sure if the system works. We have had to redirect calls to the Out of Hours again. I just fail to see how such stupid plans get passed by the Mandarins above, who screw things up big time, have no responsibility towards the general public, get paid fat salaries. I despair!!!
