The next GP Journal Club will be discussing the BJGP paper:

Telephone triage systems in UK general practice: analysis of consultation duration during the index day in a pragmatic randomised controlled trial by Holt et al. 

You can download it here.

Suggested questions include:

1) What do you think of the selection of consultation duration as the outcome?
2) Any thoughts on the study design?
3) Does the fact that only same-day consultations are triaged change the results?
4) Are the data collection methods reliable?
5) Has this paper changed your views on phone triage?

Feel free to suggest questions – via Twitter or leave them in the comments box below.
