The NHS 111 service has been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS health care services in England. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it is not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is available 24hrs a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
In a life and death emergency you may call an ambulance by dialling 999.
111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally.
Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need to:
Treat yourself at home
Go to a Primary Care Centre
If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.
