NHS 111 - When its less urgent than 999
From 1st October 2015 the NHS has aimed to make it easier for people to access healthcare services when they need medical help fast but it is not a life threatening situation.
When the practice is closed NHS 111 will cover all requests for medical advice and home visits. If you need medical help fast, but it is not a life threatening situation please telephone 111.
Calls to NHS 111 are free from landlines and mobiles, and the service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to respond to your healthcare needs when:
Medical Help is needed fast, but is not a 999 emergency
You are not sure who to call for medical help or do not have a GP
You think you need to go to A & E or another NHS urgent care service or
You require health information or reassurance about what to do next
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
