NHS 111 apps send 20% fewer patients to GP than telephone service

Comment

so approx 1 in 4 patients contacting the 111 non emergency number are deemed to have a life threatening emergency requiring immediate A&E treatment . Really ???? and then they wonder why the system is breaking . Is it because the app doesn't have a bottom and so doesn't need to cover it that it is happy to make less referrals to GP ???
