re above, i work for the 111 service and we are told that gp's dont want a short summary. also in my experience rashes are very unlikely to result in anything except home care, if a gp feels the patient is over triaged they need to feed this back, it will be taken seriously and looked into, i realise this is time consuming and i know the system is far from perfect, but its the only way things will improve. the commissioners appear to want the cheapest possible service hence most calls are dealt with by call handlers, not nurses, you get what you pay for......NHS Direct was too expensive
