NHS 111

What is NHS 111? It's a NHS telephone number for anyone to call when you need medical help fast, but it's not an 999 emergency.

Why should I use it? NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help - wherever you are, and whatever the time.

How does it work? NHS 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.
