The British Medical Association has warned that the NHS non emergency 111 number is being introduced to the public "too quickly".
Speaking to Daybreak, Laurence Buckman from the BMA said: "If you're not going to [run the service] properly, you don't have doctors and nurses at the centre of it, it won't work."
He added: "It's going to be dangerous, and somebody somewhere is going to be harmed as a result."
