NHS 111 Ser­vice Now Available

NHS 111 is a new ser­vice that’s being intro­duced to make it eas­ier for you to access local NHS health­care ser­vices. You can call 111 when you need med­ical help fast but it’s not a 999 emer­gency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, what­ever the time.

From March 2013 NHS 111 will be the num­ber for patients to call for urgent med­ical care or advice or if they become ill, par­tic­u­larly after their GP surgery has closed. The ser­vice is part of the wider improve­ments now being made to the urgent care sys­tem. The aim is to deliver a 24/7 urgent care ser­vice that ensures peo­ple receive the right care, from the right per­son, in the right place, at the right time.
