Moore, M. South Wiltshire Out of Hours Project (SWOOP) Group (1997) Nurse telephone triage in out of hours primary care: a pilot study BMJ, 314, (7075), pp. 198-199. (PMID:9022437).

Record type: Article


The “crisis” in out of hours primary care 1 2 and availability of new development funding 3 have prompted new service arrangements, primarily general practice cooperatives and primary care emergency centres. Nurse telephone triage is an adjunct to cooperatives and primary care emergency centres in which trained nurses receive, assess, and manage calls by giving advice or by referral to the general practitioner or ambulance service. 4 These services are established elsewhere but are an innovation in the United Kingdom. This paper reports a pilot study of a United Kingdom based nurse telephone triage service.
