Controversial non-emergency helpline NHS 111 is set to replace NHS Direct in Wales.
Despite some patients in England facing long waiting times, the Welsh government said NHS 111 will be “vital” to reducing demand in A&E.
Dr Charlotte Jones from the British Medical Association’s Welsh GP Committee believes the system will only provide benefits with significant resources and if correctly implanted.
Dr Jones told WalesOnline: “We are aware that various models are being looked at and no decision has been made as yet. But what we don’t want to see is the situation in England where it was rushed through with little consideration.”
