Why not just rebadge 111 as 666

Comment

"I LOVE the idea of 111 having to book into a triage slot, but: 1. Can we trust 111 not to take the attitude of 'we are the triage service so we shouldn't be booking a triage, we should be sending them to see the clinician face to face'?" In OOHrs we already have this - the usual dross. However "the Rule" is that if 111 have clinically triaged a patient we have to accept that triage and are not allowed to re-triage! Heaven help the practices.
