The NHS 111 service is a free NHS telephone number that makes it easier for the public to access local healthcare.
The service operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
Calls to 111 are assessed, advice given and, if needed, patients are directed to the most appropriate local health services. This could be Accident and Emergency (A&E), an urgent care centre, an out of hours GP, a community nurse, a walk-in centre, an emergency dentist or a pharmacy.
There are now only three numbers to know: 999 for life-threatening emergencies, your GP surgery telephone number and 111. NHS 111 replaced NHS Direct.
Calls to 111 are free, including from mobiles.
Use your local urgent care centre or walk-in centre if you need medical treatment or advice which does not need a visit to A&E.
These centres treat most injuries and illnesses that are urgent but not life threatening. For example sprains and strains, broken bones, minor burns and scalds, minor head and eye injuries, bites and stings. Further details can be accessed via the following links:
