NHS 111 is a new service to make it easier for you to access healthcare services. You should use the service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it’s not a life threatening situation.
Call 111 if:
For less urgent health needs contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.
If a health professional has given you a specific phone number to call when you are concerned about your condition continue to use that number.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies call 999.
Calls to 111 are free from all phones.
