STRUCTURE: Three primary care trusts in south west London intend to pilot the new NHS 111 advice line later this year, according to a report.

Sutton and Merton, Kingston and Richmond Primary Care Trusts will “soft launch” the service in November before applying to the Department of Health to approve a public launch in December.

The report said: “The information from the pilots will be used to support a pan-London service spcification.”
