When We Are Closed
NHS 111 is a new service 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. It replaces NHS Direct and is the new number to dial for out of hours care.
Call 111 if:
- you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
- you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
- you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call
- you need health information or reassurance about what to do next
For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way (during opening hours).
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.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
