NHS 111 is the new service replacing NHS Direct
Tel: 111 if you need medical advice out of normal surgery hours
When do you use it?
You should call 111 if:
- you need medical help fast, but it’s not a 999 emergency;
- you don’t know who to call for medical help or you don’t have a GP to call;
- 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.
