111 Service Update

We are still open and here for you. We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the COVID-19
pandemic.


If you need urgent medical help but it’s not life-threatening, then make sure you use NHS 111 instead of going straight to A&E.
 

You can contact NHS 111 by either calling 111 or visiting the website: https://111.nhs.uk/

If you need to go to A&E, NHS 111 will book an arrival time. This will mean you spend less time in A&E. This also helps with social distancing. 

NHS 111 is also able to direct to or book appointments at Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.

Remember if you or someone you know has a life-threatening illness or injury then you should still call 999 immediately.
