What is NHS 111?

It’s a dedicated NHS telephone number to help make it easier for you to access local health services. You can call 111 when you need medical help, but it’s not a 999 emergency.

You will be assessed, given advice and directed to the local service that can help you best. That could be a late opening pharmacist, emergency dentist, community nurse, an out of hours GP, a Minor Injuries Unit or an Urgent Care Centre or A&E.

You can ring the 111 number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free.
