Via FoIB Holly R, this latest from the rascals at the MVNHS©:

"Coroner demands NHS 111 changes after six-year-old Sebastian Hibberd's death "

And what, you may ask, is the context here?


"Sebastian Hibberd died after staff failed to spot warning signs that part of his bowel had collapsed."

After which he experienced cardiac arrest while, and sit down for this, he awaited medical attention.

You don't say?

But what could possibly have led to this tragic outcome?

Would you believe ... math?

"[C]all handlers were not being "adequately assisted" by the algorithm used to assess patients over the phone."

Those darned algorithms will get you every time.

Cannot wait for us to implement that here.
