111

When we are closed there are a number of other services that can help

Call NHS 111

  • When it is not a life threatening situation and, therefore, is less urgent than a 999 call 
  • When you cannot see your own GP, for instance when the Surgery is closed or you 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

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
