Dr Taj Hassaan, vice president of the College of Emergency Medicine, told the Daily Mail:
"We're worried that this is the first bank holiday following the launch of 111. At a time where 111 in parts of the country is fragile, we need to plan as well as we can".
The college said it has noted the "very serious concerns" being expressed about the efficiency and effectiveness of NHS 111 around the country.
