When We Are Closed
If you have a life threatening medical emergency please dial 999
If you require urgent medical assistance which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please call the NHS 111 service by dialling 111.
Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles.
When do I use it?
You should use the NHS 111 service if:
- you need medical help fast, but it's not a 999 emergency
- you think you need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service
- you don't know who to call for medical help or you don't have a GP to call
- you require health information or reassurance about what to do next.
For less urgent health needs, you should still contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way
If a health professional has given you a specific telephone number to call when you are concerned about your condition please continue to use that number
How does it work?
111 will get you through to a team of highly trained advisers who are supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms and give you the health care advice you need or direct you to the right local service. The NHS 111 team will, where possible, book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to
If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance they will arrange for one to be sent to you immediately. Calls to 111 are recorded.
