The safety of patients must be our paramount concern and NHS England will keep a careful eye on the situation to ensure NHS 111 provides not only a good service for the public but one which is also safe.
At least 22 "possible serious untoward" incidents - including three where a patient died - relating to the new NHS 111 advice line, a health magazine reports. The deaths are being investigated. NHS England is keeping a 'careful eye' on the service.
