How will 111 and out-of-hours care be changing?

We are working with Swindon and Wiltshire CCGs to commission a new provider for a joint NHS111 and GP out-of-hours service, including integrated clinical hubs. We will award a single contract to join up the system and provide earlier clinical input to the patient pathway.

The contract for the Urgent Care Centre at the RUH is being tendered separately and will require partnership working between a primary care provider and the RUH.

Both tender processes will be completed by September 2017 to allow the services to go live in May 2018.
