22 NHS 111 serious untoward incidents reported, including three deaths


You need a drastic reduction in attendance anywhere for minor illness or you need to increase the number of daytime GPs. GPs cannot absorb anymore workload. We are full. If this is not addressed there will be a downward spiral whereby increased workload leads to premature retirement and emigration to protect from the insane workload. Workload is reminiscent of the exploitation of house officers in the 80's. Although at least we get some sleep now, unless the government force OOH back on us.
