Headline

22 NHS 111 serious untoward incidents reported, including three deaths

Comment

It is important to remember people die after contacts with any health provider in an unforeseen/ unpredictable manner. Given the known marked risk aversion and onward referral levels of 111 I would be surprised and concerned if analysis showed these where above the "twist of fate" we all risk every day. Note the qualification of "analysis" and ask me what I found surprising and concerning later.
