What is NHS 111?

  • A simple, free to call, easy to remember three digit number that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
  • NHS 111 directs patients to the service that is best able to meet your needs taking into account your location, the time of day you are calling and the capacity of local services.

When should I use 111?

  • When its not a life threatening situation and, therefore, is less urgent than a 999 call
  • When you cannot see your own GP, for instance when it is closed or your are away from home
  • When you feel you cannot wait or are simply unsure of which service you require
  • When you require reassurance about what to do next

Will the NHS 111 service book appointments with GPs?

NHS 111 will provide telephony for all out of hours GP services. If a caller is assessed as needing to be seen by an out-of-hours GP the NHS 111 health adviser will contact the Out of Hours Doctors' service directly.

 

NHS Direct

As of March 2013 this service is no longer in use.

 

 

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
