NHS patient was told that they had just 12 months to live over a telephone appointment, it has been claimed. The call has been described as "unacceptable" by one councillor.

The report comes amid concerns telephone appointments are becoming 'the norm' within the health service, at the expense of face-to-face contact with medical professionals.

Yorkshire Live reports that Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which oversees NHS services in the area, said all of its practices were offering face-to-face appointments as well as telephone consultations.
