NHS 111 is a service, introduced 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. It’s a fast way to get the right help, whatever the time. The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and calls are free from both landline and mobile phones.

 

When should NHS 111 be used?

 When fast medical help is needed, but it’s not a 999 emergency

 When a caller doesn’t know who to call for medical help or doesn’t have a GP

 When the caller thinks they need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service

 When health information, reassurance and advice is required

 

Remember for immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.

The following conditions are considered potentially life-threatening:

 Loss of consciousness

 Severe chest pain

 Severe breathing difficulty

 Heavy bleeding

 Fitting/convulsions

 Severe allergic reactions
