111 IVR and voice based triage to reduce call drop outs (currently very high)

Around 50% of 111 calls are dropping out and volumes are up 400%. In order to help people get advice and scale the 111 service . I’d like to see if we can use the NHS Pathways tool to create intuitive voice based triage . This could be rolled into practices too.

    I would love to tackle this due to my DSP and ML background. It s a very hard problem so making a dent would be a huge step forward.

    However I have a very broadly experienced team, and I don't think this project would make much use of their skills. Or perhpa I am perceiving this myopically.

    If anybody from my team, is reading this, please let me know what you think.
