The NHS 111 service is available 365 days of the year, 24 hours a day. It is a service that can also access the Out of Hours service when the surgery is closed.
Calls to 111 will be answered by a trained call handler who will ask a series of questions, helping them determine the most appropriate place to help with your needs and a timeframe in which the caller should seek help.
The 111 call handlers will use a clinical system designed by NHS Doctors to determine the most appropriate place for treatment or to advise on self treatment.
Please think carefully before dialling 999 or using the A&E department. These services are for people who are seriously ill or injured.
