NHS 111 implodes as GPC withdraws support for urgent care hotline

Comment

It is also causing problem in the surgery too. We've just had to dedicate my office manager to check on email (which I'm told will be sent to us by 111 to alert us of their advice to patients to contact us in X hours). So, instead of concentrating on something useful like ensuring phones are being answered and managing receptionists, she'll have to keep 1/2 a mind on checking emails. How wasteful is this!
