​​NHS 111


​​NHS 111 is a free phone service ​which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
It offers you a one-stop number if you have urgent, but not life-threatening, symptoms and want a fast and easy way to get help when you need it.

You should call 111 if:

  • it's not a 999 emergency
  • you think you need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service
  • you don't think it can wait for an appointment with your GP
  • you don't know who to call for medical help.

For less urgent health needs you should still contact your GP in the usual way. For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
