Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, chairman of the Royal College of GPs, said: ‘New technological initiatives don’t suit all patients, and they don’t always save resources, despite the initial appeal of the idea.‘Moving the NHS 111 service online – via an app or otherwise – risks alienating vulnerable patients who are perhaps elderly, or simply not tech-savvy.
We question whether an app, no matter how complex, comprehensive, or “intelligent” the algorithm it uses, is qualified to decide how urgent a patient’s health complaint is, so we are pleased that this is being run as a pilot before being used more widely.’But it immediately ran into problems, with overly cautious call centre staff initially sending too many people to hospital. The Daily Mail revealed last January how 12-month-old William Mead, from Cornwall, died of sepsis after a 111 call handler failed to realise how ill he was.
And an investigation revealed that in part of the South West, call handlers were sometimes relying on just one district nurse for advice, while covering a population of 2.3million.
Over four years, the helpline saw a rise in demand from two million calls a year to 15million.

That was partly due to the success of Strike Force Romley, which probed a number of break-and-enters in and around the Armidale area and ultimately led to the arrest of two alleged dealers of the drug, methylamphetamine, Inspector Best said.
“Police targeted the supply of ice in this operation and it proved a success in keeping the city relatively free of the drug,” he said.
The app, called ‘NHS 111 powered by Babylon’, will be tested in five London boroughs – Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington.
NHS officials said the software would be able to decide in two minutes whether someone’s symptoms need to be seen by a GP or at a hospital, or whether a visit to a pharmacy or simply staying at home is the best option.
Consulting a database of symptoms and illnesses, the app uses an algorithm to judge the urgency of each situation.
