The NHS 111 Discovery frailty flagging project utilises Discovery data to flag key information to NHS 111 call handlers to improve the patient pathway and experience, and reduce the unnecessary use of emergency services and admission to A&E.
All patients within Inner East London; City and Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, and Newham CCGs.
