This data set provides potential Coronavirus (COVID-19) triage information for NHS Pathways telephony data and 111 online data in England.
This data has been released to inform the public and support the health and social care system in planning. The data will be published daily and will be collected via 111 and 999 telephony, and via the 111 online system.
This data is based on potential coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms reported by members of the public to NHS Pathways through NHS 111 telephony, approximately half of 999 telephony and 111 online in England, and is not based on the outcomes of tests for Coronavirus.
This is not a count of people. In 111 online, any user that starts and launches the Coronavirus (COVID-19) assessment services is indicating they may have symptoms of Coronavirus. They may have accessed the service multiple times with different symptoms. For NHS Pathways, it is a count of triages through NHS 111 or 999.
Users of 111 online can change answers and reach multiple dispositions so the data indicates those users that have started an assessment and completed a final disposition.
