NHS 111

What is NHS 111?

 

This is a free to call number available 24 hours a day every day of the year

  • It is a single point of access for urgent care advice 'when it is not as serious as 999'
  • This service will direct you to the appropriate agency that you need without the need to re-triage

 

There are only 3 numbers to remember for urgent healthcare advice:

  1. Your GP surgery for problems arising in the normal working day
  2. 111 if the practice is closed or if you are away from home
  3. 999 if there is a life threatening emergency

 

Calls to NHS 111 will be answered by trained health advisers who will assess your needs using a clinical assessment tool already used locally in the out-of-hours service

NHS 111 can:

  • Dispatch an ambulance
  • Give Health advice and information or
  • Direct you to the most appropriate local service

 

Call 999 in an emergency.

Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency
